Box elder corner shelf. It measures 16” x 6” x 6”. Was actually going to make another serving board when I came up with the idea of the corner shelf. Each shelf is pinned in 2 places on each side and glued. There was some tedious drilling going on! I attached a tiny brass eyelet through which the leather string goes to hold it and it sets pretty flush with the walls. The top shelf has blackberry jam and a holly spoon and the bottom shelf has peony jelly and a spalted maple spoon. Finished this with wipe-on poly only. Thanks for the look and comments.

The shelf is really cool, but… peony jelly? That’s awesome. Never heard of such a thing. I mow 3 cemeteries and I have access to literally thousands of peonies, and my wife loves making jelly. I think I see myself borrowing some peonies next spring.

mcpyfrog———yes that is typical of box elder grain in that there is a lot of red coloration to the wood due to fungus. Wood turners LOVE this wood.
