My daughter requested a set of cherry shelves. She added the stipulation that they needed to be relatively easy to disassemble for when the Navy requires her to move. I found a set of plans in Woodsmith magazine from a few years back that included shelves that fit her need. I modified the plans some, used biscuits instead of dowels, beefed up the shelf bracing with thicker material but otherwise used the rest of the plans. Applied a shellac finish. She is very pleased with how they turned out!

Looks really nice. Might you know the issue number. I would like to get my hands on these plans.
Isn’t that how things go…...the damn leg blocks my outlet now!!!!!!!!
Well done anyway.

Very nicely done and it’s only going to look better with age.

Very nice. I like how the shelf grain matches the floor grain direction. LOL

Pretty cool and logical design for corner. I like the stair frame you made.
