Thanks for the kind words! I was trying to get something near the eastern mountain look and at least came close. The cantilevered shelf isn't as strong as one with legs, but the room looks less cluttered and I have a "no storage under the layout" rule. I am not too heavy, so the table will support my weight in the areas that are deepest. I am planning on making a temporary leg that I wedge under the front edge for the rare instances when I want to get on the layout.
