Here is another project checked off the list, It’s 6/4 Knotty Alder wth Lee Valley mounting kits.
I ran a dado on the back edge to conceal the hardware.

I didn’t know Lee Valley sold anti gravity devices. I need to get some yesterday! For my use, I’d probably use natural color wood and carve screw heads on the vertical surfaces. So, I’m a little goofey ! ! :-> You did a really great job on those, DMC, and a big welcome to LJ!

Thanks for the complements and goofy suggestions, ;-}
This project was for my Wife’s office, the shelves and book cases all match, so the colors & wood type was her idea.
