This is (I believe) called a zen shelf I made via request from a family in South Carolina… Not sure what makes it “zen” but the looks is appealing. It was installed in their master bathroom. Wood is walnut.
Sorry, the picture is too fuzzy and I don’t have another. Basically, the two shelves are tapered from the outside.

I like the look of the tapered shelves. I used that effect on one of my shelf projects and have really enjoyed the results. It is one of my favorite pieces.

Thanks Dick and swirt. Yes, the taper does makes it all come together. I found some old pictures of it.

This is really a cool shelf project. I like the design and execution very much. Did the family that receive the shelf receive a system designed by you to hold the shelf up other than screws underneath it?

Thanks cmmyakma,
If you look closely, the top shelf (larger disassembled board) has 2 key holes cut into it. Two plastic anchors and screws was all that was needed to hold it up mainly because they were not going to put anything heavy on it.

Aha! I see it now, it was difficult as the wood is dark. As Wile E. Coyote says, “Ingenious!” Thank you for the clarification and again – great project.
