Very cool! I appears that you used an overlapping slots for the joints – that right? I wonder if that could be done with pocket screws?

It appears to be a halved joint project.

Very nice design …yes Jim , I can relate to the era : )

Nice shelves. I like the 60’s design as well. ( and I’m not THAT old…...yet)

Looks good free standing but would also look good on a wall.

Great job.

Keep it up.

Thanks for the nice comments. The base frame is 14×14 and the two upper frames are 12×12. The joints are simple dowel (5/16 oak) joints, edge to edge. I made the intersection slots half way, and pushed the frames together.
