Default Noob rendering glass shelves--disaster

Hi all;

I dont know what Im doing with this rendering, but I would like some tips please. I have this weird effect on the top of the shelf as seen by the arrow.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to fix it?

Thanks!

Default

check the hardness of the edges
display > polygons > soft/hard edges
experiment toggling the edges of the face between hard and soft

or it could (but quite unlikely) be from intersecting geometry

No such luck. Any other suggestions?

Default Glass

Well I deleted the polygon shelf and made a new one--that seems to have done the trick...for now. Thanks all for your help!
