Opus Oak Ladder Shelves - This particular ladder shelf has a slightly different look to the standard shelf, it is similar to an 'S' turned on its side. It has a trendy modern appeal for younger people, but is a little on the expensive side costing over $200 each. The opus shelf has 7 shelves and a height/width of 59" x 20", this retro looking robust oak shelf would make a good addition to any sleek interior.
In most cases, a leaning bookcase is presented in a sense that it looks like a ladder with cascading layers. One would have the advantage of having multiple layers of equal space of which they could determine the contents of each. These are most often made of wood and are presented in various sizes. One can have the option to place other items apart from books in the excess space of this cascading presentation. There is always the option to place picture frames or small ornamental objects or items on top or on the surface of the bookcase.
The second step in building your ladder shelves is to take a few measurements, you will need to know the distance between each rung level, this is so that you can cut out your shelves to the right size. After you have the correct measurements, you will need to add about 16 to 17 inches to the length values, each platform needs to be a little longer than the distance between each rung. Don't forget to add up all the lengths and buy enough wood board for all of the shelves, you might be able to get wood for free at your local landfill site.
