Great lookin job... Nice carpentry,
some how carpentry doesn't turn out right for me. I'm a metal man.

Here are the angles , right side of supporting rails and a lot shallower left side (22.5 degrees) on the wide side of shelf ....about a hundred bucks worth of material and a bit of cutting and sticking it together ...and a pic of the trim moulding used to face off the edges.

Thanks for that

It's ironic how we all in life have different skills and are comfortable with those skills , although some people can turn their hand to a lot of things... Myself its anything mechanical with "car" electrics thrown in.

But don't put a paint brush in my hand, you'll regret it.. Haha.

I do a lot of metal stuff as well , mainly mig , anyway with metal you can grind away anything you don't want there , even add and subtract with what you are up to ...I love making stuff out of steel ....on the other hand timber is a one shot arrangement ..you can always cut a bit more off but adding it on becomes a bit ugly...........:)

You know what was better than seeing the finished job ....my wife and daughter working with me and being involved in it ....that stuff is made of gold , family is foremost and their enjoyment out of saying hey look what we done was worth a hundred fold the cost of the materials...family.. not politics , not rubbish and continual rot ...that's where it's at fella's :twocents:

Same here. I couldn't cut a piece of wood straight, muchless build anything with it.

Never worked with metal.

Electrical and plumbing were always easy for me though.
