This is my own design, I think it’s pretty unique. It was inspired by a shelf I made for holding stains and paints (Project link ); This one will go in the bathroom to store toiletries.

Made from ¾ MDF, rounded on all edges, sealed with Kilz primer and painted to match the bathroom décor. All the joints are dados. Each shelf protrudes 1” from the sides – creating what I think is a unique look – and the sides step back 1” each step. The radii were drawn around a tin can, and cut on the scroll saw.
I’ve been planning this for a long time, and it turned out to be very easy to make – it took longer to paint than it did to cut, rout, and build.

I really like this concept. There are plenty of options for variation, one of which is to just turn the thing upside down!

Thanks for looking!
