  • This is really beautiful! The alternating shelf colors really look nice too- that adds a lot of interest to the piece. Did you use any specific hardware for mounting?

  • Awesome work! Your little one must be really excited to use this. 3M also makes dry-erase tape- if you want to, you could tape the back of it so she has two surfaces to color on!

  • Another beautiful final result. It's so great how you have the skills to make your family pretty much anything they might like. It looks like your little Yorkie approves too!

  • Thank you Ryobi, now that I'm retired I can do a lot more and my Yorkie was bribed with a few treats.

  • What a neat dual-purpose idea! This is the kind of project people will want to copy. Did you come up with this design on your own?

  • It's always a treat to see your projects! This looks like such a fun statement piece. You did an amazing job on the painting too! Is it heavy?
    By RYOBI Nation, on August 31, 2016

  • Thank you Ryobi, not heavy at all it's made of 3/4 pine boards.

  • What a cool room makeover! Your daughter must have been thrilled! The lines on the wall turned out perfectly. You should be really proud of the final result!
    By RYOBI Nation, on August 31, 2016
    • Thanks. This project was a great joy working with my daughter too. She was thrilled to help, jumped right in using every tool listed (including the miter saw), and we had a great time. She learned tool safety and gained tremendous confidence. Wish we would've made it sooner. As far as the paint lines, I found that pulling the 3M tape before the paint completely dried at a 45 helped create a crisp line without bleeding or chipping (if paint dries). There was very little touch-up required.

  • Outstanding! How long did it take you?
    By sassy nurse, on June 26, 2017
    • It took about a week on and off. The easy part was cutting the beveled edges on the miter saw. Since this was my first time joining angled pieces, the first hexagon took a little longer. The challenge was keeping the anchored pieces from moving while securing two sides together. Edge gluing was useless, don't waste your time. I used brad nails and pocket holes then filled the holes with wood filler. Using 2 clamps on the edges helped so I could pin the pieces with brad nails. It took a bit of 'stepping' up the Kreg jig to maximize the grip of the pocket holes. Practice on scrap first. Someone told me to use drywall spackling in order to keep the filling cheap. I tried it and was not happy with the result as the area is too soft and easily scratched. Use wood filler or make your own filler with fine saw dust and glue--sand, prime, and paint. To make the honeycomb, I joined 2 hexagons together at a time using clamps and wood screws through the opposite side shelf and finally the set of 2 together (there is no center hexagon piece. My daughter absolutely loves the shelf and helped me with every step. She actually did everything to make her own hexagon!
