Shelving advice

I'm a shelving novice, well actually a complete DIY novice, but I'm just about to start a project...

I'm aiming to build a shaker peg rail with shelf like the attached pic;
that goes round a corner.

My question is how best to approach the corners. The wood that will be fastened to the wall will be cut at 45 degree angles in the corners to create a neat look, but I was initially thinking that the ends of the actual shelf could also be cut to 45 degree angles but now I've bought the wood (18mm ply wood with a shelf width of 130mm), I'm not sure if the shelves will have enough support and that I'll need to leave the main - bigger - shelf at 90 degree angles and lay this onto the vertical piece of wood, that is fastened to the adjacent wall????

The shelves in the picture look as though they are cut to 45 degree angles and I'm wondering how they might have achieved this?

Does anyone have any ideas/advice?
