A friend asked if I could make him a small shelf to hold dry erase markers in his wife’s home office. I had a piece of 4/4 white oak that fit the bill. I recently purchased a Rikon 10-326 bandsaw and have enjoyed its resaw capabilities. I ran the 4/4 oak piece (approximately 4×18 inches) through the bandsaw and after cleanup on the jointer had two 3/8×18 x 4 inch pieces. I made simple radius curves on the shelf corners, then added a scollop to the top. All edges were treated to a 1/8 inch round over. I cut a cup in the shelf by running the shelf across the table saw at an angle. A little sanding, MinWax Pecan stain, and two coats of BLO/satin poly/mineral spirits in a 1:1:1 ratio. Turned out nice. He loved it. Hope his wife does. Neat little project.
