That is an interesting way to get rid of your leftover pieces, sure beats tossing them.

Saw this a few years back. Saved it as a "wish list" project. I think it would be amazing.

WOW...so I did a google search on "tree bookshelf" and found some really amazing designs...

I wonder what joinery they used for the branches...?

Thanks for posting...

I'd likely connect everything with dowels, lots of them, and I'd think seriously about replacing the drywall with plywood for some support behind it. Other ideas?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

As DRT said, a good plywood piece behind the shelf unit to stabilize it plus it could easily be attached to the wall.

You could probably connect it to the wall using something like these connectors set into the trunk.

The construction of the piece is a good candidate for using a Domino.
