An early valentines day gift for my wife.

Made of pine and birch plywood.
I made the three shelves different sizes, more for the aesthetic look rather than a uniform same size look.
The shelves are unfinished, just a very light coat of poly for a little protection.
I chamfered the edges to take away any harsh corners.

Nicely done.
I have a pine theme in my basement and would love to build shelves such as this.
Could you please take a picture of the hanging mechanism?
Thanks.

Pauljp,
I can do one better, here is a link to a plan that uses the same hanging mechanism.

Thanks Jeff.
I don’t know why I keep thinking it’s more complicated than what it actually is.
I hope mine turn out as nice as yours.
Keep up the good work.
