Saw this in a magazine and decided to give it a shot. This was my first real woodworking project.

I love it. It looks perfect for a friends house. Are the shelves ply or hardwood? How are the ‘feet’ attached? How are the non-pegged shelves held in place? How were the shelf corners notched out to fit around the frame?

It’s all joined with mortise and tenons and made out of oak. You can see this project and plans in a book from popular woodworking books entitled ‘Quick and Easy Weekend Woodworking Projects’.
