This shelf I made from pear and finished with wood oil and 2 coats of lacquer. It’s was build for another person so I cant show how it’s look hanged on the wall.

Very cool. How did you make the end-grain to long-grain joints?

I am currently building a shelf like this, slightly modified design but same inspiration. How are you hanging it? I was thinking of using mostly an internal cleat.

Thank you for all comments. I see that BinghamtonEd asked me how I join end-grain to long-grain and powdernine asked me how I hanged this shelf, it will be hard to explain in english because I’m from Lithuanian but I try. So joints are very simple to make. In both sides with router I make grooves fill them with woodglue and put in that groove a plywood so all joints are maked this way. Now about hanging. In store I bought a three small metal sheets with holes. With glue and woodscrews I atteched them to shelf and then I drill a three holes into the wood. Then another screews goes into the wall and shellf monting on thes screws. I hop you understand what I want to tell.

Good description of the joint. You speak English well. What you’ve described is a spline joint.

Very cool. Similar to another not to long ago. This design is really creative, I hope if/when you make another one you share your techniques in more detail with pics. Sounds from your description that you used floating tenons. I think I’d like to make this but I will cheat and make a hollow skeleton.
