So heid had requested my father and I make some additional shelves for the kitchen, during their annual east coast pilgrimage. After careful review of my pre-pinterest collection of inspiration photos, I began drafting up some idears, and presented them for careful consideration.

With basic plans green lighted, we went to work. 1/2″ painted mdo right cut and then corners radiused on my CnC; the majority of the work was done on my table saw, including the dado cuts and ripping the cleats. The shelf brackets, mean time, were done again on my works CnC, and painted matte black as an accent piece. I tried to keep the design a bit arts nouveau, which is the root of the craftsman movement, of which our bungalow is a shining example -1927 after all!

After locating the studs, we were able properly anchor into 3, with the rest of the supports being fancy winged molly-bolt-like things. Combine the dado cuts with the glue up and the nouveau brackets, and those puppies ain’t going anywhere.
