Safety equipment and years of table saw experience required. Frank can cut anything on a table saw. That is a custom mobile base on our saw that is rock solid. The extension table folds up and the outer structures have levelers.[/one_third_last]

The top panel is a separate section and the two bolt together after the top panel is mounted to the wall. There was so much surface welding on these panels we ended up going with liquid paint so we could fill/sand. [/one_third_last]

Frank had two days in the mortises along the rear edge, but they were perfect of course. It was amazing, we bought two 4’x8’x3/4” acrylic sheets and because our design called for qty 16 shelves at 47 ½” x 11 ½” we had zero waste. That never happens.[/one_third_last]

I have a special fondness for this piece. I have designed/fabricated dozens of high-end cantilevered shelves but these are probably my favorite.
