Attached with this step the original design with all the dimensions. You can always make your own adjustments and changes depending on the look or the size you like.

Step 3: Finishing

You can customize the finishing the of this project depending on the look and the color of the place you are planing to use this shelf in.

plywood with wood stain will give it amazing look and feel. I started by sanding all the edges to get clean and smooth edges.

After that I used black paint and this is the final look of the project.

    Do you need to stabilize it in some way? I love the look and the simplicity.

    Thanks :) .

    not at all., the material we used is heavy enough to stabilize it.

    I think I will build one to replace a useless end table that I have never liked. Thanks.
