Made these shelves to display G scale model trains for a guy. I made 5- 48” wide and 2- 36” wide.
Truss parts are made from poplar and the shelf is alder. Used air assisted spray can lacquer for the finish.
I’ll be using z-clips to hang the shelves.

That is neat L’R’M’... Gives a great trestle bridge illusion.

The only issue I can see is that if it is a permanent resting place, the loco may go loco with accumulated dust unless it’s cover by a glass/perspex “box”.

Neat way to get that industrial truss look. Nice job.

I like the truss element. It’s a creative tie-in to the purpose of the pieces. Well done.

I saw Model Train without reading the SHELF,

and while a little disappointed that your project wasn’t a model train, the shelf does look very good sir!!
