This was a quick project that simply satisfied a need. It was simply a matter of ripping a 4×2, notching them, adding some paint, and then screwing the shelves on. But, she likes it. That’s what counts, eh?

Free standing? Yup. Everythings at 15°. I was going to put the complementary angle on the top, to give more surface against the wall, but then didn’t. Just a couple of felt pads.

Very nice! (Although at first glance I thought this looked like something I might have built back in my drinking days.)
