Interesting, but how did you get the edges of the thin material used to face the unit looking tidy?

Is there a way to get adjustable chelves which look seamless like these non-adjustables?



How about the same but one or two of them being able to slide in and out of the alcove?

You attach a hardwood 1x2 to the front edge of 3/4 plywood hanging down with glue and a few finish nails. Patch, sand and paint. This creates the illusion of a much thicker shelf If you want a really thick shelf glue two pieces of 3/4 ply together and dress the leading edge with a hardwood 1x2

You cut the hardwood so it JUST FITS then you position the shelf on the shelf pins so that the shelf is flush with the surrounding board. Sliding in and out you will need a hidden drawer slide mechanism.
