DIY Wooden Triangle Shelves

May 10, 2016

We had a few requests for the diy for these wooden triangle shelves so this post is for you if you were wondering how to make your own triangle shelf!

These shelves really take no time at all to throw together, I think it took Vladimiry about 10 minutes (and that was with me taking photos), so as long as you have the right tools, you should have a few new shelves hanging on your walls in no time!

What you need:

  • Wood (we used pine)
  • Circular saw
  • Planer
  • Miter box
  • Wood glue
  • Nail gun
  • Nails
  • Sand paper


How to do it:
Cut wood to the width you’d like using circular saw (our shelves are about 2″ wide). Use the planer to clean the edges. Using the miter box, cut a 30 degree angle on the end, flip wood 180 degrees and measure it the length you’ll want the shelf pieces (our is 12″). Cut at desired length at 30 degree angle again (see photo above to see how the piece looks once both ends are cut). Add wood glue to end, and glue two pieces together. Let set for a minute then nail boards together. Repeat with remaining piece. Sand shelf. We left our shelves as is, you can add stain, paint and/or a coat of polyurethane if desired. To hang, use a nail or screw in the wall and hang triangle on it. (Make sure that it’s secure enough to hold whatever you’re putting on it). Use 2 screws, one in each corner, if hanging the triangle upside down.
