After making the oak and maple shelves my wife told me she wanted another shelf for the other side of the window!
I didn’t like the idea of making two shelves just the same so I told her I would come up with something. I wanted to make something similar but different.
I decided to make a double shelf using the same technique as on the single shelf. I pictured one shelf right side up and the other upside down.
This is what I came up with!

Nice design for hiding the hardware. Nice work on the shelves too.

In my sketch book I have a shelf very similar to yours. I was going to use keyhole hangers, but your method a wonderful alternative. Thanks for posting it.
