I wanted some shelves to display comic books on my office wall. There were a few requirements that I had:
- No visible fasteners
- Comics cannot fall off
- Easy to switch out comics
- Potential for future lighting
The result is a French cleat system (no visible fasteners) with "lips" to keep comics secure similar to a hand plane till (no falling/easy switching) with 1/2" channels routed in the cleats for possible lighting in the future. The results are as close to the picture in my mind as I've ever come. Next steps will be to get the 3D printer working again so I can print spacers that will allow me to display CGC and Gatorguard slabs on the top row.
