Here is a simple wall hung shelf I recently completed. It’s made from tiger maple and cherry. The shelves are attached to the vertical supports via saddle joints and a screw on the back. Each shelf is 9/16” thick at the center and tapers to 1/4” and the ends. The end are toed-in at 5 degrees. The vertical supports are tapered on three sides from about 1.5” x 1.75” to 1” x .75” (If memory servers me correctly). The finish coat was General Finishes Arm-R-Seal Oil/varnish blend.
Oh, Almost forgot, the shelves are hung with a key hole. If you look close, you can see my oops moment. I ran the supports the wrong direction on the router table. I did the other one the same way to ‘hide’ the mistake :-)
