Aerostyle Bookshelf by MikeDoscher Aerostyle Bookshelf by MikeDoscher
Having access to a garage and woodworking tools has let me indulge all sorts of urges. I'm fitting out my office in furniture that's kind of like the sort of concept design I gravitate towards. This is a sort of initial test piece.

Construction is straightforward enough- it's just pine and birch plywood secured with brads and Gorilla Glue. The primer is the water based Kilz and the base coat is a matte latex by Valspar. The wash and metallic highlights are craft acrylic. I still need to add a few coats of clear sealer and buff it down.

This is pretty much the start of my secret lair.

By all means! :) I'm going to try and do a further iteration on it using aluminum over a wood frame, but I have some design problems to solve first.

That is awesome! And a good investment, when you think about it. It's easy to take for granted how much of an impact the spaces we inhabit can have on us.

Impressive and fun. Let us know when you build your giant electrodes and install the massive viewscreen for your diabolical plans...

Wow great. I am somewhat concerned about those "tools" you have there. Evil geniuses use more elaborate ways to dispatch their foe.

Cool Bookshelf!
