Cascading Shelf

2 Reviews


If you need a set of shelves to display small items, this may be a great fit for you! This shelf features a clean, modern design with 3 shelves that cascade down from the next, leaving a nice amount of space for items to sit without the height of the items being a challenge.

Items pictured are for example only. No designs other than the shelf are included.

Product Details
  • You can make your shelves almost any length and width you like.

  • The 3 shelves I have pictured are 4"x15", but in the design the shelves are 4"x10".

  • You can change the size of the shelves without any affect on the design since the 2 support pieces can slide left and right to fit nearly any length. You could even add a 3rd support for extra long shelves if needed!

  • Gluing may or may not be required depending on your chosen materials

Material I Used:

  • Glowforge Thick Maple Plywood (batch I used measured~0.193" thick)

  • Glowforge Thick Walnut is significantly thinner than their Maple, so be sure to measure, measure, measure and adjust if you use something else!

Other Details:

  • Supports are 12.1" wide x 10.75" tall

  • Shelves can be any length and width you like. Pictured are 4"x15". Size included in file are 4"x10".

  • You can use any material you like! The only adjustments that will be needed are the slots to fit your chosen material. See Tips and Tutorials tab.

I use LockTite GO2 for all of my projects

IMPORTANT: ALL MATERIALS CAN VARY IN THICKNESS FROM BATCH TO BATCH, so you will need to measure your materials and may need to adjust the slots -- even if you use materials labeled the same as what mine were.
