Dovetailed Shelf

This was a small project I took on for a friend. He purchased the wood and asked me to build it to his specifications. The woods are Cacao de Negro and Spalted Maple. It has through dovetails on all four corners and sliding dovetails for the shelves. I made quick work of it on the Leigh Jig.

Thomas, beautiful work. Beautiful shelf. Your friend is fortunate to have you around. How will it be attached to the wall?

He’s going to mount it with key hole slots on the back I think.
