Had an empty hole in the wall to the closet when we moved in. Why? I dunno. What to do, what to do? I made a small bookshelf in it.

A very fine built in but you forgot to post the final shot, the one where it’s so filled with stuff you start thinking about opening up other holes in the walls!
For myself I dunno about the riot of knots, but like those thick shelves, nice work.

Wow…if I ever get my current house sold, I think my first “new house” project will be something like this. The wife has a rather large collection of shot glasses that would look quite nice displayed like this…...by the way, I kinda like the knots….to each his own, I guess.

Wow. NOW I know what my next indoor project will be … a place in the kitchen alcove to display our hundreds of shot glasses. And they will be within easy reach of the table ;)

-- Have a happy day!

I am glad you like it.
