Looking at all the shelf’s that where posted recently it must be shelf season !
This little wall shelf design turned into something a little bigger and more functional .
It only took fifteen years to complete from idea to mounting which happen today and my wife is very pleased .
This is a console that will function as a decorator item but will also store sun glasses ,keys ,cell phones ETC. that always get displaced and also give visitors a place to put whatever .
Made from 3/16” walnut veneer on birch plywood and birch solid for the drawers with shop made maple pulls .
Size is 38” W x 12” H x 9 1/2” deep and finished with BLO and a couple of coats of General poly .

Only 15 years. Man, I got projects that are 20 years in the making.
Nice set of drawers by the way.

Well done Kiefer! It’s nice to have a place to keep all those little things.
I was thinking this could have almost been an antique by now if you executed the build 15 years ago! Just joking…hope your laughing!

Beautiful floating shelf. I like the way you edged the sides and back. I guess it’s not how long it takes as long as everyone is happy. (sometimes)

Wondering what you have been doing. No recent postings. Like the flow of the piece. Nice balance and thought for the room that it occupies. I can’t see the sides of the drawers. What type of joinery did you incorporate there?

It’s a Klaus Kiefer!

So that pile of wood did get turned into something very nice and useful! I never saw a veneer press in your shop?
