My GF is currently a designer for Ethan Allen and she’s decided that she can pimp me out to make things that EA doesn’t carry. Sometimes I think she forgets I have a day job.

Here’s three shelves of African Mahogany. They are 1-1/2” thick, about 32” wide and 23 ” & 14” deep. Each has a quarter circle opening in the right rear for cables.

General Finishes Java Gel and Gel Satin clear coat.

The difficulty was only the right wall was straight (the other two bowed out) and neither corner was square.

The project was interesting and I was able to work with a species of wood that I have not worked with before. Very beautiful wood.

Thanks for looking.

-- Measure it with a micrometer, mark it with chalk, cut it with an axe.
