A Bizarre, Busted-Bicycle-Band Bookshelf- Budget/Space Saving Storage

 Somewhat recently, I’ve filmed/worked on a few simple and low budget project videos/episodes for “Tiny Yellow House” and for Make Magazine, and this was one of them- its a bicycle inner-tube bookshelf, that is affordable, removable, and can be used for storing books either on top, of stretched-within (as shown). Its simply made of stock threaded pipe pieces, flanges, and a few bike bands- all of which I got for free from Velocycle in Canton, MA (thanks!).
   As a “double feature”, I shot this episode (still being edited) at the “Wooden Wonders” Hobbit Hole HQ in Unity, ME, so you’ll get to see some cool shots, interiors, and more…..well, once I finish.
   Its another, recycled-material idea that might end up in the follow-up to my “Humble Homes, Simple Shacks” tiny-housing book, which I’ve been working on for some time.

It is Rocy's place in Unity….which is featured in half the video- I installed the shelf/project in one of their “wooden wonders” hobbit holes….

not to be overly negative – the house itself looks amazing!

I love this hobbit house! The door itself just smiles and seems to say “come on in!” The bookshelf? It may not be “pretty” but hey, it works!
