A good friend told about an Amish furniture store in West Union, Ohio where he goes and looks at hand made furniture, takes pictures, and goes home and makes them in his shop. Big mistake, I left there with many pictures and lots of ideas. So my wife got to liking the corner shelves I took a picture of and here it is.
I was able to buy some hard maple from that same friend at a great price. The job was a little challenging for me without plans. I was going to finish it natural however decided to put a golden pecan stain on it with 3 coats of General Finishes Poly.

who needs a set of plans ? Looks pretty darn nice to me. The only time I use plans are when I plan to go to the beer fridge and get a beer ( after work of course )

Thanks guys, it was a fun project and getting hard maple for $1.65 a bf made it even more fun.
Hey Dick, we are planning to make the Atwood Fall Fest this year, so I’ll look you up. It would be neat to put a face to a name.
