I'm looking to run some mug shelves around the perimeter of my lounge & would like suggestions for construction, attaching, finish, etc., as well as, some good pics of yours.

Hey there Kahuna,
I built a shelf around the top of The Aloha Room for mugs.
You can get a glimpse of it in some of these
pics

Basically I just used 1x4 boards, stained them and mounted them with those simple "L" brackets. I put the brackets on top of the boards so you don't see them from underneath. Once they were up, I just used split bamboo along the front edge to finish them off.

Aloha,

Thanks, Tiki Royale. The funny thing is, I was the first one to reply to those pics way back when! Those Moai shelves are cool, but I've got more than 300 mugs.

Marh had a lot of mugs too.

Now, he has a lot of Rum!

The funny thing is that the bar is soooo tiny!

( in that room....)

my bar ran out of room so I ran a high shelf along the top edge of the hallway leading to the bar from my livingroom.



got these at Ikea. I think they are made to be a plate rail. they have a lip on the front plus I used museum wax to stick stuff down.

Our original purpose was to hide a projector screen. I think this pic shows more of the screen than is usually showing. We split a fat piece of bamboo and attached it to a flat shelf so that we could put mugs up there. I wonder if this could be done with spacers so that there is a gap between the shelf and top edge of bamboo so that rope lighting could be inserted to light the mugs...

Here is where I am at the moment Kahuna.

I am using 1" X 6" pine, sanded and prepped for stain.



I am using 3" corner braces to mount the shelf (Find the studs in the wall so it is solidly mounted)



After staining & then cut a wrap around corner piece, wood glue & attached some
corner brackets on the top & bottom of the shelf.



I am going to router slots for the wall brackets, but I am very rusty with the router, So I practice a few cuts.



That's it for today, I will post more later as work progresses.

Put the mounts on the shelf



Drive screws into the studs




First section is on the wall & very solid







I still have another section to mount and some Bamboo trim, but that is the basics
I will post a few more finishing shots soon.
