I hope this hasn't been answered elsewhere in the forums - i have looked and don't think there is an answer so far! Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.
With reference to the shelving project:
- my alcove is approx 1.6m across and say 220mm deep - is the method suggested, along with 1" depth of wood, sufficient to support the reasonable weight of books that could be put on the shelf? If not, what additional support (preferably hidden) can I use? or should i use a thicker shelf?
- the back wall is concrete however one of the sides is plasterboard and the other one wood (part of boxing around pipes or similar). Is most of the load borne by the back wall fixings or should i consider additional support at the ends (perhaps a frame of some sort) to ensure strength?
The books in question aren't huge tomes, but a mix of 'normal' sized books.
