My wife bought me a pretty nice mitre saw for Christmas. (Didn't bother wrapping it!) Double bevel, sliding, the works.

My task, build shelving that wraps around a corner with invisible mounts. Like this. I've got a general idea of how to get this done but like I said, I'm new to this aside from growing up helping a father who was always building or fixing something out in his shop.

So, where would you start? Anything you think will be tricky?

Thanks and I look forward to learning and sharing my future projects with everyone!

You won't have to miter the corners if you don't want to. You can butt the two sides together then attach the short side screwing through the back side of the longer piece. You can use a keyhole router bit to put mounting holes on the back side of each wing.

Neat little project! Make sure the walls are are at right angles first or the mitres however accurate they may be will not fit the wall properly!

Walls are VERY rarely perfect, too!.. :O
