This is a shelf that I built for my kitchen in Fall of 2014. I used to have a metal wire shelf in this small space between the wall and kitchen cabinets and always hated it. I looked around for various shelfs to fit into this space but either didn’t like the style or they didn’t fit. After deciding to build a shelf instead of buying one, I looked at various designs for something with open front and sides and that stood about 6 feet tall with enough space for all the items I needed to place on it. I ended up finding a short shelf that I liked and felt I could build at the time and redesigned it to be 6 feet tall and a little more narrow to fit into the tight space. I bought the wood at the local home center and set to work on sizing pieces in my backyard. After everything was cut, joined and sanded, I finished with 2 coats of Tung Oil with a light sanding between coats. The picture shows the shelf finished and in place in the kitchen.
