Love the idea , so light so airy. great design and joinery. I really like the angled shelf bottoms it shows a intelligence . I give only this advice the walnut might have been alittle wider to show more strenth. Love to know how it is hung flush up against the wall. Continue on my friend

the walnut is suprising strong, this was the first made and i agree; on the templetes i created from this they are about 1/2” wider and i think ill bring the bottom of them down another 2 and 1/2” for balance. i mortised two keyhole hangars into the back between the top and middle shelf, tape some flat thumb tack where you want the screws level and push them into the wall accurate every time all thats left is adjusting the screw depth until its perfect and snug. wish i knew the thumb tack trick years ago.
