Modern wall shelf in cherry with dovetail joinery

I’d like to submit this humble little shelf project I did a few years ago for WIA 2009 that was a part of a video project I did with Gorilla Glue. This was a part of a series of shelves I did to practice some hand cut dovetails in curly cherry and purple heart. The video at this link gives a more basic approach to building them with rabbet construction and dowels. All materials you can purchase stock from a local big-box.

If you are looking for another easy alternative Megan’s Fitzpatrick has got one here at Popular Woodworking’s “I do that” blog post. Either way, a shelf project like this is one that can use basic joinery for a beginner, or more advanced dovetails and unique spacing for a more advanced woodworker.
