This is one of those projects where I probably should have just bought a finished one! I could buy identical shelves for $2.99 at Walmart, but what’s the fun in that. I got to practive using a keyhole bit in my Dremel Tool. It didn’t go so well, but at least that part is hidden against the wall. I later found a jig plan for keyholes. Maybe next time.

Your daugter will love them. Much better than Walmart shelves.

this looks lovely. Walmart-shmalmart…. You can’t buy love!

I recently purchased a keyhole bit for my dremel but have yet to use it… perhaps I’ll just wait on that.

Nice shelves. Made with love. Forget the cost.

I’m glad you decided not to go to Walmart! It turned out great.

Great job! I would, and most folks I know, would rather have something made with love rather than filling the coffers of Sam Walton’s heirs.
