Plate Shelf Woodworking Plan

Plate Shelf Perfect for the dining room and kitchen. This plate shelf features several types of architectural-style moldings that are mitered together.

First, there's a layer of dentil molding. (We include instructions for making it yourself.) Just above the dentil molding, there’s a layer of thick crown molding. This molding isn't difficult to make either; it's built up in layers. So to create the profile, all you need are a couple of common router bits. Finally, the shelf is topped off with a galley rail.

The Plate Shelf is 36" long by 6-1/4" deep by 4-3/4" high. It's attached to the wall with a cleat that is hidden from view.

This project was first published in Woodsmith No. 106.
