I made this shelf from oak. The column in the back is made from 2 pieces laminated together and planed to thickness. The shelves were made from an old oak shelf that was already 12” wide. The shelves fit into the column via a half lap joint. I cut 15 deg angles along the bottom outside 3 edges of the shelves. I wanted to give the shelves a feeling a lightness. Using 3/4 lumber made them feel so bulky and heavy, by cutting all that away it really helped i think. I also put a screw through the back just to keep it snug into the column. It’s hung with two butterfly anchors into drywall only. I oput a piece of masonite behind the drywall and put the butterfly anchors through that as well to help strengthen the connection. It’s finished with 1 coat of Danish Oil, and 1 coat of laquor. i really wasn’t in the mood to do 4 or 5 coats of the laquor… :)

Nice job, seems to me that it has an Asian feel to it…
