A super shelving project!

Seattle-based designer Sean Miller turned a stack of old issues of National Geographic into a functional bookshelf.

First Sean coated the magazines with a a water/starch mixture and then he placed them under pressure for about a week to harden. Next he took a band saw to the consolidated stack and carved out space for a shelf…

 Holes were also cut into the bookshelf’s sides, allowing it to slide onto three rods to be hung. About 80 mags were used.
