I'm assuming the hole is a cubby with sides and a back wall, if not never mind........

Make the shelves with a double layer of 3/4 "good one side" furniture plywood with a 1x2 of matching wood on the front edge.

Cut the bottom piece of plywood 13/16 shorter on the two ends and the back. Attach 3/4 x 3/4 cleats on the side and back walls of the cubby hole hitting the studs. Lower the shelf onto the cleats.

what it will look like is "floating shelves"

post a pic of the wall and we will make other suggestions.

Pretty sure it's black GOM (guilford of Maine) fabric. It is an acoustically transparent polyester fabric (see fabricmate.com to buy)

yes just build a sturdy frame and stretch and staple fabric. Position the staples where they won't be seen. Be sure to paint the frames black before attaching the fabric.

some pics in this thread of some frames.

Looks like 3-4 sheets of furniture grade plywood if you do double thickness plus all the trim wood.

Yes $150.

You could probably get it done for $50 if you used single thickness (only 2 sheets), the cheapest grade plywood, no edging and you painted it black and didn't care how it looked.

For $100 (assuming you have all the tools) you should be able to come up with a paint grade, sturdy, good looking unit

OK, just get this:

Assemble and just slide it back into that space. I think it will just fit
