I saw this project in a woodworking book I got from the library. Original designer was Dave Munkittrick.
I used bridal joints to marry the supports and shelves. Reinforced with screws from the backside. These shelves are VERY sturdy.
If you look closely you’ll notice one support is darker than the other. This is because I cut the tapers on the left support upside down, and had to mill a new piece. It was actually from the same board, hidden deep inside the same tree. I love cherry!
The best part is these will get better with age… the other wood will darken up and they’ll look more uniform.
Finished with 3 coats of thinned amber shellac. Thanks for looking!
