The shelves are made with leftover red beech flooring. The “legs” are from a piece of malas that had been lying around. The battens (screwed to the wall) are recycled from a garage door jamb. The finish is tung oil.
This was quite tricky for me as nothing was square. The concrete floor is uneven. The walls are narrower at the top, and also narrower at the front. I wasn’t sure how to make the joints in place (even with pocketholes clamping would have been tricky) so I removed the architraves from the doors to the left and right, built the shelves in the workshop (dowels plus screws) then fit them in and replaced the architraves.
I don’t have a bandsaw. The first shelf was cut on a jigsaw, the other ones copied with a router. If I had to do it again I might spend more time on the template. Pleased with the result overall, will have to see how it behaves when loaded.
