More on Paper Shelves

For those who are interested, the shelves seem to be able to handle a fair amount of weight. Mr fishie here weighs about 300g and wasn't causing any trouble whilst sitting there.



I can't remember what weight paper I used - I think it was around 300gsm because that was all I had, but I reckon you can go a bit heavier. I've uploaded some PDF templates if anybody wants to try: narrow(80mm), medium(115mm), wide(150mm).

Hi Lara,

That is a very good idea! :) I think i will show my flatties (we are kind of setting up the flat again from scratch. Looks more than a little mismatched- we have an outdoor table in the living room...)
Anywho, since you are such a talented busy beaver (sorry, I really like that expression!) you certainly deserve all the accolades/press you have been getting lately. Keep up the good work! :)

thanks so much for your templates! Much appreciated. I SO hate being a renter, and landlord is such a stickler for holes in the walls.
