Finished, finally. Even a reasonably simple project takes months if all you have to devote to it is a few hours each weekend.

The main shelf is 94” x 12” and was designed to make use of some dead space over a window. It was a bear to get it up and mounted single-handed, especially into a masonry wall.

I’m a novice and I’ve been trying to incorporate some new (for me) techniques into each project. This was my first try at pattern routing (for the curved supports) and stopped dadoes (for the small lower shelves).

The project, step by step, can be found on my blog:
