I made these simple CD display shelves for my grandson's bedroom. They are made from Tasmanian Oak, 42 x 12mm for the backing and 65 x 12mm for the base. I glued and screwed them together from the back. I also made a 12mm x 3mm groove with a router to prevent CDs from slipping off the shelves.
To finish off the project, I painted the shelves with a satin clear coat and they were mounted directly to the wall using small WallMate anchors. These shelves can also used for displaying photo frames.
How to hang just about anything
The secret to successfully hanging anything on a wall is knowing what’s beneath your paint, tiles or wallpaper. How your wall is constructed affects how you drill into the wall, what wall fasteners you should choose, and how much weight they can hold.
