these are some different wall shelves that i make as gifts mostly and sometimes i use leftovers from a customers job and give them one that matches thier crown moulding just as a token of apreciation . i had posted a cherry one and one of the l. j.s asked if id help him through the process of making one . so i wanted to post a little different style he could use . if you look close at the black you can see these dont return back on a 45 deg. angle they turn back on 30 deg. so they kinda flare back rather than square . also something different is the silver one is painted with automotive acrylic enamel i think its a 2002 chrysler color with metal flkae and a slight red pearlecent additive . the black one is again automotive acrylic enamel a mercedes straight black auto paint works quite well on wood ive been doing it for many years . i plan on doing a blog on making these . as i talked to this jock on the phone but its kinda diffocult to explain that way thanks for looking

Nice shelves. I assume you screw a cleat to the wall then attach the shelf to the cleat?

That’s really great looking. I have such a 90-degree mind (although sometimes mistaken for obtuse) that I would have never considered a soft angle like that. The flare effect (and that “I” effect) really make these original.
Nice job. Very creative.

Nice MrTrim. As we say here in New Orleans, you are offering a little Lagniappe for your customers. I will be watching for the blog on how you build them.
