This is a shelve I built for my daughter it’s not finished in this picture. I added the hooks and she wanted it painted. I got the plans out of shop notes.

I’m sure she will love it. You will have to add a picture of it when it is finished.

Bill: What kind of hooks are you adding. What is the wood.

Great job.

Bill, What a great project. I just started the exact same piece yesterday. I really like the way it turned out for you. I hope mine looks just as good.

I just used pine, kind of thought it fit the project. I first bought some hooks a home depot kind of a double hook but shiny they looked terrible. So I drove to Grand Rapids just to look for hooks about 45 miles away. Found just the perfect hooks they really made a difference. When I get back to Lititz PA I will take a picture of the finished shelf.

Good stuff! Nothing like the satisfaction getting ‘just the right look’ even if it requires a drive…

This is a great starter project. Iam just a beginner myself. I made a mistake I said I got the plans from shop notes. The plan was actually in Woodsmith Magazine. Just take your time and follow the directions and I should turn out fine Drew.

That’s really nice! I’ve been contemplating making one of these for our entryway from the garage. Very nice!
