ok so i got some 1/2” walnut the other day and this was one of the pieces so i had to do something with it and this is what i did
so the main problem i have is what it actually is, the dimensions are 7 inches wide x 35 inches long x 11 inches tall, so that makes it too short and skinny for a table but too “legged” for a shelf maybe..
anyways so what would it be called and also i originally planned on taking pics and throwing up the question what would you have done with it? so id like to hear those answers also.
so far weve been calling it a “shable” i dpoubt that will help much tho but i look forward to hearing yer ideas and responses

-- if you dont have it, build it, especially when its a stupid idea

I don’t know what you call this but it would be a great display shelf for my bench planes. I would display them on my basement bar until ready to be used. They would look great there….

I’ll tell you where it might be cool, As a over the kitchen sink shelf 35” should span a standard kitchen sink 7” wide won’t extend too far into useable area. A great place for plants or small knic knacks? you could call it a shink short for shelf/sink. LOL

I agree with gotwood1962, over the sink plant shelf would be cool.

I’d call it superb! It’s function, besides staring at, I don’t know. I thought it was a bench at first.
