These are some Mission Arts and Crafts style plate rack shelves that I make for one of my customers, a local Arts and Crafts Furniture store here in Salt Lake. The darker one is made of Quarter Sawn White Oak with a red aniline water dye applied then a walnut oil base stain, finished with satin lacquer. The lighter one is made of Quarter Sawn Red Oak with a Noble Cherry Oak stain and then finished with the satin lacquer. The pegs are of walnut, which hides the mounting screws. I make these in small production runs in 18”, 24” and 36” sizes. A very simple design nothing fancy.

Who needs to display anything, Debbie? It looks just great all by itself!

Nice shelf. When we lived in St Louis, our house was an Arts and Crafts. (Which I knew nothing about at the time)

The living room and the dining rool had a plate rail all around the rooms about 5’ above the floor. My wife loved them.

Max,
These are beautiful. I just love the simple design of these “Arts and Crafts” projects. I believe that the beauty of the wood is more prominent when the style of construction is not so ornate.

Thanks a lot for sharing your design and details with us!

Thank you all for the very nice comments. I really appreciate them. I temporarily mounted these to the wall of my shop so I could take these pictures.

Truly beautiful craftsmanship…...I’m not a fan of staining over Mother Natures’ beauty , but you did a great job and the grain really pops in your pix here …:) Thanks for welcoming me to the site
