    I’d wonder if the lasercutted bridges of which are holding the letters are enough strong to hold some books… Run a FEA first to get the answer, but I’m sure it going to bend down. In model it looks nice and shiny, but in reality it will not work.

    Pretty sure the shelf doesn’t fold flat when not in use; it just comes flat and then you fold it out to install it. If you kept trying to fold it up and then back out you’d break it.
