The Steampunk Shelves
If the concept of steampunk is new to you, it is a mixture of old world and technology. Think the Captain's Ship in Stardust, Warehouse 13 or anything by HG Wells.

It was a perfect addition to John's office (along with the framed 1950's framed pulp fiction sci-fi covers.) This shelf is only phase 1 of the "steampunk shelves." The rest of the design will carry over the door and around the room. Stay tuned...
UPDATE: The next phase of the shelves is finished. Check out the how to: http://bigtea.blogspot.com/2012/01/steampunk-shelf-final-product.html
