Here is a built in shelf I made out of Red Oak. It’s screwed together (none visible) with screws, pretty simple. The front cleat is pegged on with dowells.
I cut a hole in the wall behind it and my wife’s cat passes through. Kind of silly, but it seems to be a lot of fun- visitors either ‘get it’ or don’t!
I hung it on the wall unsing a french cleat- basicly i ripped a board on a bevel. I hung half, and put the other half on the back of the shelf. I used rare earth magnets to find the studs- the magnets jump onto the drywall screws. Of couse I also had a hole bashed in the drywall so I could take a look for myself.
