About two weeks ago Hopdevil posted a question to the forum about shelving he had seen in the Martha Stewart Magazine. It is called birds beak shelving.Well thank you Hopdevil, a gun went off in my head. This would be the perfect project for the Torque WorkCentre.So off I went to my shop with video camera in hand and shot this remedial video showing how easy this project was to make. It was more difficult to get the camera and my mouth working at the same time so I think it shows how I really...
