This is a design and woodworking project to build a leaning frame with floating shelves. I wanted to give the impression that the bookshelf melts into the wall and gets lighter as it ascends. This is accomplished by the regression of the shelf walls as they meet the diagonal supports and the complimentary eight degree angles at the normal planes. Exposed hardware, 2:1 red and brown stains, and gloss coats give this all pine shelf the lightweight industrial aesthetic I was aiming for.
