Here is my idea…I will post some of my previously build projects so you all can see what kind of work I have done and where my current skill level is at. Unfortunetally, I haven’t kept a good digital photo record of all my past projects (including some that I felt turned out really well), so I guess I’ll just post what I have.
My wife likes candles. She keeps a couple of them in our master bathroom and wanted a shelf to keep them on. She liked the brackets I made for the TV shelf and wanted the same type done for the bathroom shelf. She also wanted the same finish. Well the problem I had was that it had been at least a year since I built the tv shelf, so I couldn’t remember which router bits, etc. that I had used. But I winged it and here is what I came up with…
Again, cheap Lowes wood, pickling stain, and wax finish.
Obvious mistake: I but-joined and screwed everything—I should have taken my time and cut dados and glued adjoining pieces. But, in my defense, the boss was impatient and wanted this shelf up in a hurry (she thought she was going to burn the house down having the candles on the windowsill).
