I like your design. I had planned to do something similar (but on a smaller scale) in a home I was remodeling years ago, but never got around to it. It’s a great way to be able to change your artwork periodically.

Thanks for sharing.

Good looking shelf. Good things to have. Did you cut out the letters as well?

No Tom…..I didn’t cut out the letters. Those were store bought. I don’t think I’d have the patience to take on cutting all those letters out.

I created this shelf for my newly decorated dining room.
And what the letters cut out? Fret or contoured sewing machine from a template?

Very nicely done! I’m sure that it is most impressive in the dining room. That is a lot of wall space which it covers. The wood appears to be Oak-is that correct. Did you form all the molding as well? Really it does command a lot of attention. Congratulations again on a very unique design and build.
