Spice shelf

Spice shelf is made

It is a common mistake that a 3D printer can only print things for decoration - that's not true. The result of the printing is quite durable and strong. To prove it (and to make space to store our spices) we designed and printed a shelf.

The first version was quite simple and it looked really good. But we missed the fact that we couldn't assemble it to where we want to, because there was not enough space to drill the holes.

This supporting design made it easy to assemble and the result is even stronger than the previous one - although we only plan to store a few jar of spice on it, it could support much more than that.

assembled gothic shelfAfter the paint job was done - which by the way made the plastic looks like bronze, which was the goal - we fixed it on the wall next to the side of the kitchen cupboard.
