This afternoon I came up stairs to get a book. I found that at sometime in the last 24 hours another shelf had broken and fallen to the floor. Luckily nothing was damaged and the repair solution was easily at hand.
|the space where the shelve should be.|
|the reason the shelf fell down.|
|pocket holes to the rescue|
|shelf repaired, and not likely to fail again.|
When this happens, as it has happened before the broken pin gets left in the hole. The last time I drilled out the broken bit of pin. Once the pin was removed it was replaced with another pin that will probably fail too. This time I put a wooden frame in place, the lost space on the shelf is not enough to bother me.
|the frame/bracket thing is solid and with a bit of stain,|
it will blend in fine.
