This was a gift to my wife for her collection of Willow Tree Figurines. I made it out of QSWO and features 2 long shelf brackets made out of a single piece of oak. I cut a dado in the bottom 2 shelves to fit over the brackets. The top shelf just is glued and pinned to the top. It was a fun and easy project to build and looks great on the wall. I finished it off with Danish oil and 3 coats of shellac.

Very nice job on the corbels. I know that wasn’t easy.
