Building Airing Cupboard Shelves

I made some shelves for the airing cupboard. Constructed from 2×1″ PSE. Very simple construction just 2×1″, wood glue, screws and Danish Oil.

Shelves laid out prior to fixing some shorter to accommodate plumbing.

Once the 2 shelves were complete, I sanded and finished with Danish oil to protect the wood and to improve finish.

Then I moved onto the supports, I have kept the shelves and supports separate so if access is needed for maintenance the shelves can be quickly and easily be removed.

I mitred the corners on the upright supports to improve the aesthetics. Scrap wood used when cutting to prevent tear out and keen a good edge.

Mitres fitted, the shelves slot onto the uprights fixed with one screw each to hold them in place and to make it easier to remove if needed for maintenance.
