Nice job, Rick! I don't see any issues with the thickness - looks fine to me.

I don't see a problem with the thickness of the shelf. I think it would also be okay if it was a little thicker. I don't think it would look right if it were thinner.

Rick,

We are our own worst critics when we do something new !
It looks good as is, don't overthink it, that causes stress !
You actually inspired me to create a similar shelf as soon as I recover from my surgery. My wife has a collection of Beany Babies and wants a corner shelf in her office above her TV. I'll have to make 2 shelves to hold them all, but seeing yours, I decided to make them floating also and paint them same as the walls.
Cheers,
Dan

BTW; glad to see you were able to do a project with your vision issues.

Looks great, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Thanks for the comments guys . As I said I hated to even post this as it’s pretty mundane, but it was nice playing in the shop for a change .

A woman at work had a good idea , stain it grey . Someday I want to make a new coffee table and end tables , and I think grey would work great .
So at some point I may get some more Baltic birch and try again .

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Looks good the way it is, Rick!
Why on Earth would you want to use BB for something as simple as that shelf? I can't think of a single thing that would be an improvement (using BB) over what you've done.
If that's all you've got in stock then sure...

Dragon? You can paint dragons any color you want, maybe you can find one with a propane tank inside and when you press a remote fire shoots out of its mouth.
Just saying,
Herb
