How fun are those?? I really wanted my shelves to be thick and beefy looking. I also wanted them to be super sturdy in case a certain 2 year old decides to use them as a ladder. It will happen. This design does both!
I have a full tutorial here…

This is a great beginner project… Very simple cuts and assembly!  Let’s get started!

Supply List for 3 Shelves
