Quick shelves to hold my surround speakers.
I used 4/4 “Tulip Wood” (aka: Poplar)
I used jigsaw for the first curved support. Then, used flush trim bit to copy for the second one.
A round over bit finished all the edges.
Dadoes didn’t come out as tight as I’d like and I was worried about the glue bond. So, I screwed from the top of the shelf into the support. They are going to be up high and no one will be able to see the actual shelf area.
Finished with 3 coats of 2 pound orange shellac. I used some mixol pigment stirred in for added color. I have used the mixol on 3 projects now and I really like it.
I wanted to use figure 8 fasteners to hang them. But when I asked for them at the store they looked at me like I was talking alien. So, I attached them to the wall with some brass corner brackets, again no one will be able to see. I think I’m just going to mail order my supplies from now on—done with the box store, unless I just can’t go without it today.
