Three corner shelves of reclaimed lumber. Bought from Timeless Timber (very nice people). Old growth maple and birdseye maple salvaged from barges that sunk in Lake Superior. Made very slightly darker by staining with tea. Finished with Waterlox finisher/sealer then a coat of paste wax. Teaching myself how to use my tools so this was a good project for hand planes from start to finish.
Mounted with 3/4” maple strip, front is 1 1/2” so it’s mostly hidden. Nailed where there are wall joists, 1 screw and plug where I had to put the plastic plug into the drywall.
