These shelves were requested by my wife to be put in to my son’s room. My son was recently moved into his “big boy” room in order to make room for his sister whom is due in Oct.
Shelves are 7”x18”x3/4”, made of Poplar. Supports are 1/2” poplar shaped with my band saw. Poplar was conditioned with Min-Wax Conditioner (helped the stain be more uniform), two coats of Min-Wax Chesnut Stain, and two coats of Tung Oil to finish them off.
This was also my first time using a 3/8” key hole router bit. I used this manner to fastned the shelves to the wall via 50 lb dry wall anchors. Yeah, 50 lbs is a little much, but I am sure that I will walk in the room one day, and find my son trying to climb them, swing from them, jump from one to another, something…
Nothing fancy, but my two year old son got a huge kick out of the hat hooks. He thinks he is cool now that he has a place to put his fishin’ hat…
