I always am looking for ways to use up my “extras and cutoffs” to make something nice for my wife. I asked her what she could use around the house and she shared that she had recently received a couple of statues that could use some nice display shelves. So I did went to Pinterest for some inspiration and this is what I came up with. 2 QSWO display sheves about 18” tall and about 11” wide at the base. The center slats are let into the upper and lower rails using some very fine mortise and tenons. The stiles are attached to the rails using pocket hole joinery and the shelves are set in a shallow mortise and screwed from the back side. The vertical corbels are just glued on and are for decoration only. I finished them with a good bath of dark walnut danish oil and 2 coats of sprayed on shellac. I think they turned out great and I finished them just in time for Valentines day. My wife loves them and I hope you do as well! Thanks for taking a look!
