Shelf Mod for Minecraft 1.4.7/1.5.1/1.5.2/1.6.1

This is one of my personal favourite mods for Minecraft 1.5.2, and it should definitely be implemented into the game, it gives you a great way to showcase things you are storing away. Instead of putting your items into a chest and then having to explore the chests to find all the stuff, you can have them on shelves to find them easier and it looks cool!
