These are a set of shelves i did for a local seafood chain. All said and done it was a total of 15 or so. They are made of poplar and finished with a gel stain and general finishes enduro var (which i absolutely love! It sprays so nicely)

Very nice, I want the hot sauces on the shelves. Great way to display your work.

Very nice. Poplar doesn’t usually look that nice stained. Yours finished beautifully.
Are they adjustable shelves or fixed. Why I ask is that in Pictures 1 & 4 (the taller cases) it looks like there was enough room for another shelf given the fact that they filled them with short bottles.

thanks everyone.

ohwoodeye, the shelves are all fixed. they had specific measurements for what they needed in case they had to put other items on the shelves. And yes, poplar stinks to stain but thats what they wanted. I sprayed a heavy coat of shellac first to try and even it out, plus the gel stain goes on relatively even.
