Radiator cover with built-in shelving

The radiator was off-center in what looked like a temporary housing, and the ask was storage that looked symmetrical.

Believe it or not, the center panel was probably the most interesting part of the this project. In an effort to keep the weight down, I used 1/4″ ply with framing. It wanted to bow, so I put in 3/4″ steel bar reinforcements to brace it. Holds are routed finger-pulls. I still ask myself if the weight saved was really worth the increased effort compared to just ripping a big piece of 3/4″ ply, putting in faux-door grooves and having had done with it.
