That’s cool. I had to look at it awhile to notice those were shadows. i thought each shelf had a curved cut of wood in it!

Cheers, Jim

For those that wish to make one of these. The Platforms are 36”, 30”, 24”, 18”, and 12”. I cut my circles on a band saw. The Post is 2” PVC and then between each post is whatever the next size up is to fit over the two” PVC. The Space in between is 15.5”. It has small casters underneath so it is portable. The first layer is braced underneath and then a 4X4 separates the first layer and is screw up from underneath. Then the second layer is applied and screwed down onto the the 4X4 (cut 15.5 “). This is so it can be later disassembled for storage. Use a fosterner Bit to drill down the center so you can tightly slip in the PVC pipe and add the rest of the layers. Hole saw the other layers as needed. Each Layer is held down tight by the outer pvc pipe and then a screw put in the keep everything tight. Continue to the top. We will be putting this up in the attic all to soon so I need it to be disassembled at that time. Here is a great little video on making a Band saw Jig for cutting circles.

Have your say...
