Every 1st of the month is NYC it’s futon graveyard on the streets – here’s a good project you can do instead of tossing them, make shelves. Gorillapoop writes –

Turn an old futon into some sweet new shelves. Concept by Gabe Nathanson. He’s the original “suspension invention” inventor. This particular design/implementation by me.

Ingredient list:

  • Turnbuckels – 1 per threaded rod
  • Threaded Rod – i used 1/4in
  • 1 old futon – or other shelf like wood
  • box of washers
  • box of nuts (both should fit the threaded rod)

Tools:

  • drill
  • dremmel – optional

    Nice little project. Although it reminds me of the walkway collapse at the Kansas City Hyatt in 1981.

    It looks like you supported the shelves in the correct way for propper load transfer.

    we used our old futon parts for lofts in the tree house. other past uses for futon parts: compost bin, wagon, fire wood.
