These scrolls were usually inscribed by hand and so their production was quite costly. Religious institutions, libraries and ancient universities prized the books highly. These necessitated the need for specialized containers or boxes which were easily accessible for easy referencing. Initially the shelved containers were much deeper and separated into many compartments for easier access. The shelving was usually hidden away in closets that blended with the home decor or in private study rooms.

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.

Your first items to do are to pick the material you wish to use for the shelves, select the finishes you will apply and the location where you want the shelves. There are just tons of pre-made shelving kits available today. Corners, straight, pre-edged, scroll work bracket supports and so on. If you choose to do your own here are some helpful hints. Pine wood is the easiest to work with as it is a soft wood.and cuts, drills and sands quite easily. Oak is a hardwood that requires some more special techniques. Both make fine shelves but the final finish you can achieve may determine what species of wood you choose. Once you determine the location of your new shelf you need to locate the center lines of the wall studs. A stud finder tool can make quick work of finding the studs. Gentle tapping on the wall with hammer can sometimes be useful but is not really accurate. Mark the stud centers for nailing purposes later on. A corner shelf is one the easiest shelves to mount as by it's very nature, it has supports on two adjoining walls. Using a carpenters level mark on the wall two lines at the height you want the finished shelf.

If you are renting an apartment and can't nick the walls or hang objects, use two tall narrow bookcases on either side of the window to hang a curtain rod in between. In one "unit" you will have shelf space and a window covering! Have household goods that need a little hiding? Fill your shelves with pretty baskets, which can hold items like remote controls, cleats, plastic bags, and so on. And if you have items that you wish to show off, ditch the baskets and give your books a run for their money; pair them with your trophies, photo albums, framed art, or toy trains. Use the tops of arm-level shelves to place your keys, wallet, or purse when you first walk in the door. Having a space where you can always put down your personal belongings will help prevent misplaced items and hopefully keep you from having to crawl around the entryway in search of your keychain.

They are two different kinds of floating bookcases. One is hung up on the wall above the ground giving it the appearance that is floating. The second is designed so that once the books are stacked the shelving sort of disappears making the books appear to be floating in thin air. These are good for small spaces as they are less obvious and make the room seem larger.
