I made this for my Mom last Christmas. She collects nativity scenes and her collection had finally grown beyond the limits of her old one (not to worry though, she has enough for both this one and another one). This is made of walnut with brass pins, is 48” tall with 6” wide shelves from 36” to 8” long, attaches to the wall with a modified French cleat and is finished with boiled linseed oil. Thanks for looking!

There is so much more to this than just shelves…just display…it’s a celebration and quite wonderful.

I appreciate the non-symetrical design here. You are also taking excellent advantage of different joinery and finishs on all your projects! Great job sir!
