Hey ladies and gents. Here is an interconnected wall shelf I made out of Poplar. My wife saw one like this at some pizza parlor and asked if I could make one for her. It’s about 20” by 20” and is made using half laps in strategic places. It is stained with antique walnut stain and finished with Shellac. The pictures are a bit dark, but it came out very nice. It can be mounted diagonally or straight up if you wanna fill it with knick-knacks or spice shakers or such. Thanks for looking!

@MuseumQuality I just used those small brass picture frame hardware that you hammer in with small brass nails, since I knew that my wife wouldn’t be putting anything heavy on it. Thanks
