How to Build Dry-Stacked Stone Walls
For as long as humans have built settled communities, we have built walls—and in the 21st century we're building them faster than ever. Construction has begun on more new border walls since than in the previous five decades combined. Many Americans on the anti-Trump left seem unaware of this recent history. When Donald Trump vows to replace our massive border fence in Texas with a more massive and more "beautiful" border wall, the idea is often dismissed as an impractical fever dream of the Republican base: a bit of retrograde red-meat rhetoric wildly out of step with our irreversibly globalized world. Build bridges, not walls, says everyone from the Pope to Black Panther. Across the world, wall-builders have had other plans.
Wall mounted shelving is a great way to keep your books neat and tidy. It does not matter how big or small your book collection is. You can keep these books in better condition for years to come with proper shelving. If you are tired of your books stacked everywhere, you can start this project. It does not require much skill to build wall mounted shelving.
I built my first bookcase in middle school. A multitiered assemblage of wooden planks laid across stacks of bricks, it was reminiscent of pieces from the early Flintstone Period--and I was proud to have made it myself. Since that masterpiece, I've built 50 or 60 more, most while working as a cabinetmaker for an interior design firm, where I learned the carpentry skills, design guidelines and construction techniques used in the bookcase shown here. Basically consisting of three plywood boxes fitted with a hardwood face frame, this piece looks built-in because it spans from wall to wall, and is trimmed with molding at the ceiling and floor. With moderate skills and some patience, it wouldn't be hard to make this project fit any space. On permanent display: mahogany, solid biscuit joints--and a whole lot of class.
