This is a leaning shelf made from 6/4 Birch for the side frames, plywood shelves with 3/8 solid edge banded. This was my first sketchup design. This was also the first project for my new Jessem Doweling jig (really a nice tool). It was a little tricky leveling the shelves, I drilled all the rear dowel holes then used a square to transfer the height to the front leg,and used that mark to line up the doweling jig. Sanded with 220 and 3 coats of Gloss Enduro-var followed by a final satin coat.

Kind of like the racks that the Navajo use to display rugs

I like this. Would also work as a plant stand or as an accessory to a potting table/bench. Great job.

Nice clean design. The contents on the shelf take the show but the shelf sure compliments. It really fits with the wood siding wall. Nice work!

Well done sir. I’ve never seen siding like that, is that HW flooring?

When I saw your post, I had to do a double take. A few months ago I built a stand almost identical to yours to display my boxes in my store.

Good job, obviously I like the design.

Nice work sometimes projects with angles can be tricky.

Thanks for the nice comments,

Vakman – The wall is cedar planking – This is not in my house but I have used this planking previously, it is nice but dings easily.

very nicely done. Your design or did you work from a plan? If from a plan, would you share it?

Yes I designed it it sketchup first then built and modified as I went along – I can email you a copy of the sketchup file or PDF of each scene (Section) if you like – I believe you can message me and put your email in the message and I will send you the sketchup file.

Thanks for the nice comments.
