Bring out the designer spirit in you. You are only limited by your imagination!
Furnishing an empty room can be fairly difficult. Finding space to put extra things in an already furnished room is even more difficult. This is why you turn to corner shelves. Corner wall shelves allow you to use those corners, where nothing else useful will fit, for convenient storage and decoration. Corner shelves can be wood slats attached directly to the wall, or any form of bookshelf, drawer set, rack, or stackable boxes that fit snugly into your corner. They are perfect for any storage; books, crafts, files, fruit holder, photo displays... Nearly anything in your home that has "no place," make a place for it. In the corner. With corner shelves.
Lumber yards generally only carry boards up to twelve inches wide. By pre-drilling all the holes and countersinking them for screws, the fasteners will become invisible when filled with wood putty and painted or stained. You can install multiple shelves this way and the entire shelving will appear to float in the corner. If you have the more complex wood working tools, you can install some sides very easily using what is called a "kerf" cutting method to place small vertical slice cuts on the inside face of the boards and gently bend them around the curve of the shelf. Making a curved door is beyond many homeowners abilities or tools but by carefully kerfing the back of the boards to be used for the door, gently bending them to shape around the curve and clamping them in place, it can be done. The boards will quickly assume the desired shape. After the initial shaping, applying a thin coat of good carpenters wood glue and a couple of stiffeners you will have a great curved wood door. Install some decorative hinges and a lock and you have wonderful corner shelf unit in your study for your treasures.
