Making Plate Shelving

Making Plate Shelving

I am trying to save money, so I hope this is an appropriate post. I want to build a thin, long plate shelf to display some nice wooden, painted Mexican-style trays. I want to build it from lumber pieces, instead of buying a kit. Does anyone have suggestions or a link about how to go about something like this? I'd want to make it about four feet long, and I have some hand tools. I can get a miter saw box and blade arrangement at the hardware store for under $10, and I plan to make up a pickling stain from some leftover paint instead of buying anything.
