Weekend builds: Bookshelf

Here’s a little weekend project. We have this mezzanine bed with windows and window shelves around it. I’d like to put books there but sometimes condensation pools so I need something to raise the books a little above the level of the shelf.

Because I can't resist, here's a scan of the relevant area. This one was done with Polycam
Playing around with different designs, I went for the middle ground of having some curves at the base but not the top. I wanted them to be catenary curves but couldn't figure out how to do that in fusion so went with arcs instead.
The final product, I'm not fully happy with the proportions, it's a little too big relative to the books in real life. I created the books from that polycam scan so I must have gotten the scale wrong somehow.
