With the waste material from the counter top, I made this shelving. Spalted Big Leaf Maple from Ben and Suzy's wood shed. The Maple is ripped into 2" strips and laminated together. I made the second shelf down out of Mahogany because I was short on the maple material.
The shelves stair step down suspended by a 3/4" x 7/8" stick of maple, mortised into place. The suspended shelves are lightweight and sturdy.
And a forged bracket as support underneath.
You can see on the right side of this image how the shelves progress up from the counter top at the same angle.
