Dovetail shelves

This my first, and only, woodworking project.

i’ve had my eye on the atlas shelves for a while, but those are super expensive, so I made some myself. these are made out of pine, they are more of a prototype than the actual thing. the standards are made out of poplar.

the shelves have a notch on the inside corners, which slip over the standards, and then secured to the standards at the top with a wooden peg. i wanted the standards to be hidden on the inside, so when you look at it from the side, it looks like the shelves are floating.

I would have to say that that looks to be a very well executed first project.

Well done.

Pretty ingenious. Good work on the dovetails. Most people don’t tackle them on their first project.

These are very cool.. Love the floating look and the adjustability is very useful. Great work!
