A few cool shelves: a skull shelf and another, made of books by Jim Rosenau, invisible shelf, secret stash shelf, accordion shelf by Thut Möbel, maze shelf and broken shelves.

These fetish posts are getting weirder and weirder.

nice post, nickyskye. I especially liked the maze shelf, and the other items they offer.

I like the stash shelf. Just saying.

Am I the only one that was disappionted to see that the skull shelf was not made of skulls?

No. I was also disappointed. What the heck kind of bait-and-switch is that?

I like the maze shelf, although I could have done without the blurb. But the shelf is really cool.

From the secret stash shelf:

designer's own words:
Quick hide your porn!” 72 degrees* is a bedroom shelf for teenagers - designed to provide a place to store and hide pornographic magazines.


That this was the purpose behind it's creation makes it so. much. better.

That lower picture of the maze shelf reeeeeally makes me want to take it off the wall and tilt it in various ways until I can get the apple to roll through the maze to the exit.

Even then, it's quite attractive. Filled up, it has a bit of a Cornell box quality to it.

72 degrees is the average angle of a healthy erection.

Phallicfilter: My penis hangs at about 120, maybe 115 degrees when erect. Should I be concerned? Please hope me! I'd really like to put...

I was also expecting some sort of ossuary action from the skull shelves. They're pretty cool in their own right, though--a kind of goofy "memento storage".

A few years ago my brother built a slightly skewed shelf that eliminates the need for bookends. I also know a guy who builds shelves around his objects as he acquires them. His walls end up looking like apocalyptic lumberyard tetris.

Kids still look at magazines? ;)

Great post. The "broken" shelf is most excellent.

Either you are standing on your head or you should be concerned.

And if you're standing on your head and measuring the angle of your penis, you should maybe be concerned anyhow.

I know! Why, exactly, are those called skull shelves?
posted by dejah420 at 12:42 PM on June 29, 2007


Because they look like skulls?
posted by OmieWise at 12:54 PM on June 29, 2007


Because you can see the optical illusion of a skull face, with the wineglasses/bottles for teeth, the clocks for eye sockets, etc.

Where's the first flickr photo from - whose account? I'd like to see more of their stuff.

iconomy, the skull shelf design was created by James Hopkins, as is noted on the second image. The first skull shelf image came from hoggardb's Flickr set (should have given him credit earlier).

I'm not nearly as disappointed about the skulls as I am that the accordion shelves weren't made out of accordions.

Hah! Mediocre minds think alike nickyskye. I was just talking to an artist/woodworker friend of mine today asking for help in designing some new shelve for my living room. These will come in handy. The maze shelf is interesting, but I would be afraid that the "broken" shelves would cause my ocd to flare up.

The broken shelves make me angry. I have shelf rage just looking at them.

Thanks nickyskye - it was the first photo I was talking about. I can never figure out how to trace a flickr photo back to the photographer.

That would be dope.

Nice wood.

That website the "stash shelf" is from has some freaky spirituality and ecology online classes.
