    Hoe do you keep the middle shelf from falling when weight is put on it.????? The film is no where near strong enough to hold a wooden shelf…

    One point I’d like to illustrate, though I’m a big fan of the idea and the reuse;

    Cellulose nitrate film burns very readily with little heat, and once burning, is very difficult to extinguish. It also releases a plethora of noxious gases, all of which are combustible themselves and highly toxic to humans.

    If you use this shelf, please do not use candles on it, and keep it away from heat sources and open flame.

    From your friendly green firefighter!
