A piece for the wall…A wall shelf without a shelf.
Actually I must admit that this came from a mistake…It was supposed to have two shelves but I cut the side tapers first instead of the dado for the shelves. I could have probably cut the dadoes afterwards by using my miter gage and adjusting the angle…but I just decided to shelf that idea for this piece and make it a wall decoration.

It sorta grows on me and I think I will make a few more of these “shelfless” wall shelves.

Greg,

You say Playing I say Creating! Nice. It’s not as involved as a sculpted piece, rather not as much labor and dust? Yet I see and feel the energy. Oh yeah, I like it!

That is so cool. It rings of the roaring 20’s. If the center piece floated a hair out from the base you could insert a thin lighting rope under it and there you go. The question is ‘would you want to go there?’

Nothing wrong with decorations. Could be a popular item.

I agree with Monte. Could end up being a best seller. Still beautiful work.

We all make mistakes but what makes it even better is the story that comes with the mistake and how a mistake can be made into a beautiful work of art, very nice save and a piece for the wall Greg.

I like it Greg. Nice wood combos and design. It doesn’t have to hold anything. It looks gr8 by itself. :)

It IS a shelf, you just have it mounted sideways! ;-)
