This project was a commission for The Clearwater Gallery in Sisters, Oregon.
It was built with wild Oregon cherry I purchased from Hardwood Components, Inc . . . a local family run hardwood mill that specializes in native Oregon hardwoods. After getting some rough dimensions from the gallery, I worked out the design for the project over several evening using SketchUp. I used my vacuum press to veneer the bottom of the shelf with rift sawn cherry and to press the carpet covered shelf insert.

Finish schedule was two coats 1/2# clear shellac to minimize blotching followed by a single coat of 1# amber shellac and 6 coats of wet sanded Original Formula Waterlox. A final buffing with two coats of clear wax finished off the project.

David the colors of the cherry fit in great in the store. A nice job and it looks like it’s easy to use.

This came out nice. Perfect size for the space.

Did I see pocket screws in a different picture? How did you attach the slats?

John -

Leave it to the discerning eye of a teacher . . . LOL!

I used a Kreg Jig & pocket screws for the mock-up but used loose tenon joinery for the final version. Either approach would work. I just prefer to hide pocket screws whenever possible.
