This was a window before an addition was added on the other side of it a long, long time ago. We bought the house with an odd-looking vinyl replacement window in the original antique frame. I walled up the opposite side and built this shelf out of plain old box store birch plywood with poplar edging. I built the shelf square but it turns out the frame wasn’t so I fashioned some moldings on my router table to hide the slop. It turned out great and looks like it was built that way. Now my wife and I just need to settle our dispute on what color to paint the walls! Sorry that the pic is sideways. I can build a book shelf but I’ll be darned if I can turn a photo 90 degrees!
