Here’s a closet shelf I built as kind of an “extreme overkill” solution for a friend. The first picture is the sketchup 3d rendering. As you can see from the finished product, some of the curves were eliminated, not for complexity, but because it reduced the cost of the already milled, readily available dimensional lumber the customer chose to go with. The shelf is oak plywood with a solid edge banded to it (it was about 2 inches wide). Then there was a bullnose profile added to the front. Because this became a cost savings project in the end, I used some golden oak minwax stain I had laying around and wanted to get rid of. The top coat was a spray on lacquer and then a coat of paste was on top of that.
