I made this shelf for a couple friends of mine, it’s my first shellac finished piece. It took me a little while to get that perfect(ish), but once you get that stuff right, it looks really good. I re did the top after I took the pics, because in the sunlight on that table I could see lines that I couldn’t see in the garage. I got it to a point where I could barely see any lines in the bright sun, and the end users put it on a counter with no direct light, so they’ll never notice! ha

Thanks Tooch!, Sorry for the delay, the my openings are 2 7/8d, 2 3/4 w, 5 5/8H, and yes the boxes do barely fit, they need to be snug to hold the box while you pull out the coffee cup. I’d suggest just buying a pack of the coffee your inlaws drink and use it to test your spaces, then just leave them in place when you give them the shelf, bonus!
