Show and Tell: From Russia with sensible storage solutions

Or maybe that should read, "from the workshop," but hey, we're here for the funny. We've seen Tetris-themed shelves before, from the homemade variety to the type reserved for rich folks with taste, and one and all, they make us lust for some block-built shelves of our own. The cunningly-fitted wooden sections would surely bring a particular charm to any gaming space, but the presence of so many plain wooden versions does beg one question: why aren't any of them painted in multiple colors?

Oh well. We who only envy don't really get a say, do we? Clayton, we want your shelves. Feel free to pack up all your gear and ship that off as well. Thanks, buddy.

Clayton tells us that this is an older picture of the shelves he lovingly crafted for his media, and we can only imagine how they must look now, groaning with the weight of an ever-increasing collection. We salute you, Tetris fan ... and may we recommend these for your cold beverages?

Hit the break to see the shelves in full, and don't forget to show us what you have in the way of awesome gaming gear. From crafts to cakes to collections ... whatever you've got, if it has a little Nintendo flavor, we want to see it. Just take some pictures (or copy your web album links) and send them to showmeit [at] dsfanboy [dot] com. We'll take care of the rest.

Yeah, but what's going to happen when he reaches the ceiling and then his whole place fills up with shelves?

Though the tetramino-shelf thing has been done before, what's really impressive here is that the cables for all of the electronic devices appear to be well-concealed.

Or I suppose it's possible that the picture was taken with all of the devices unplugged. If that's the case, I say boo to you, sir. BOO.

He screwed up. He put his entire game collection in a completed row. I hope he realizes that before it disappears.

My interest is piqued by the yellow Playstation.

I made some of those, and they are very unstable! Super easy to tilt over! I put some lava lamps, a sword set, books, and all my games on them. Very sweet.
