Charles….good looking mantel. I hate working with oak! It seems everytime I use it I get a splinter. Got a lot of it, you have inspired me to make something from it.

Really Great Looking Shelf, CJ
I like the edge treatment on the top. You are making great use out of that Red Oak!

Beginningwoodworker,Very nice job on the mantle shelf. I’m sure Mom likes it very much. What type finish do you plan on using? I’m with lew, I like the edge finish as well, on the actual shelf. Keep on keeping on, Looks like you’re on a roll, now!

Nice project to use up the scraps. Keeps them out of the landfill and decorates the house, a win-win!
