My second house project for our home. I wanted more shelving in our bathroom and wanted to come up with a way to make use of the far wall that was blank space. I went with more gummy cherry to match the counter top and the design was just a spur of the moment decision but I like the final result. The shelves are just dadoed into the larger pieces and glued. The large center shelf is friction fitted between the side pieces which are screwed into the walls. I used 5/4 wood like on the counter top and chamfered the bottoms of everything to knock down some of the bulkiness.

Followed the same procedure as I did on the counter top: sanded to 4000 grit, linseed oil followed by some poly.

Got a thumbs up from the wife so I’m calling it a success

I like the concept of ’’two walls shelve’’. Usualy they are in one line, but you made it more interesting in different levels.

Chris, this is a nice practical project and is very creative.
