Basic hand tools
Stain of your choice
1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch oak post
1/4 inch oak hobby board
Step 1: Cutting Your Material
I ripped my hobby board just to my preference on how deep I wanted the shelves
Then I cut the ends making each one 2 inches longer than each other the longest being 12 inches. So I had one 12 inches, 10 inches, 8 inches and 6 inches
Step 2: Notching Your Post
Then take a scrap piece of your oak 1/4 inch scrap and put it below the mark marking the other side so you know how wide to make your notches.
Then using a table saw saw inside of each line and then all the remainder left
If it's a little ragged clean it up with some sandpaper or a chisel or a file.
Step 3: Assembly
Then mark the center of each shelf. Since they are all even numbers it will be easy . For this of you with math problems use a calculator. Lol just kidding!
Just put a small mark on the center of the shelf and line it up with your mark on your post. Glue it and slide it in.
Then using a pin nailer shoot it in the very corner at an angle going into your post making the pin holes hidden.
Step 4: Sand It
Step 5: Stain It!
