This shelf was made specifically for my late Grandmother’s glass collection, and it now lives on my bedroom wall. As I picked up the walnut board that would become this shelf, I could see pattern in the grain lines with resemblances to a fish shape, so I used the outline as my design guide.
The shelves are “floating”, meaning they sit snugly within cut dado slots, but they are not glued or secured with screws. Each one can be removed and moved left or right to create your own desired look. The main vertical spine is secured to the wall by two simple screws that hide themselves inside the dado slots, so no hardware can be seen.
