This is a replacement for a painted particle board shelf that we had in our kitchen for the past 2 year. I got tired of looking at open grain of particleboard and started this one out of two pieces of very warped and cracked pistachio wood from the scrap pile at Dead Tree Salvage. I added gussets of the skeleton of cholla cactus. I tried to cut the sap wood to follow the heartwood in these 2 pieces the best I could. It is a 5×18 shelf and is finished with clear satin spray lacquer.
