choosing the correct materials, thks and arrangement).
What book among the three (or other ones, if you feel like) would you
I haven't looked any of the three books. But, I like all the
Tauton books I have, so I figure you'd probably be happy if you picked
Never heard them called "bananna" shelves before, but know what you
mean. I prefer reinforcement of some type maybe every 2 feet or so,
maybe 18 inches, under the shelves. Maybe a strip fastened under the

top. Looks good to me, and has been plenty strong enough. Of course,
you could get fancier, and make a nice wooden support to go under the
shelf every 2 foot or so, but for my own stuff, I don't do that.
But, rather than spend good money for a book you may only use once,
there's plenty of free plans on the web. hehehe
Even if there's none you like, you can always get ideas from looking at
them. Here's a few to start with.
