Nice look. Did you do all the cuts while they were rectangular, and then cut the curves? I imagine cutting the joints on the curves could be challenging.

That is one very unique and quite visual project. Must have been quite a build.

Books?? What are books?....oh, aren’t those the things old people used to read? :)

I like the shelf. Not sure I like the look of the clutter once it is filled but to each his own.
Like Swirt asks, are these joints half-lapped? did you cut them before you cut the curves?

I really like the design. It’s almost a shame that it starts to gets hidden once it gets used for its intended purpose. :(
