Cherry shelf

This is a cherry and painted fibre board shelving unit based on a construction idea I have revisted several times over the years. The shelves slide into a three sided dadoes, (slots), on the vertical supports. The actual order of the shelves can be changed, and the whole unit can easily be taken apart for moving. They are fun to make, and I enjoy making them asymetrical.
