I have a bunch of them but I don't have a lathe or a milling machine but I do have a metal blade on my chop saw, a drill press and a slide vise, plenty of bit sets and end mills so I can fake most of it pretty well, I had the milled shelved sinks made but I have made my own by drilling and taping a shelf to a cylinder and I have also built square units, I can cut plate and bar stock to size and do it the cave man way turning to size with a sanding disc on my radial arm saw and chucking up my cylinder slices in a hand held......someday I will get a lathe and a manual mill.
Here's a square build I did but if you don't have some basic workshop tools you are not going to be able to do this at home, it will be better for you to get a host with a shelf made or a slip over with a shelf.

Here's a very simple box type slip over, you can see how much of the c-lenses are used by the beams imprint.

Here's how I attached a shelf to a cylinder, it's attached with screws through the back.

Here's another way screwed from the front.

I was just looking at all of your work. For one thing, you have one heck of a creative imagination. How are you making all of this stuff without a lathe or milling equipment!
