I made this for my daughter to place above my new granddaughter’s changing table in her bedroom. It’s just a simple box with some adjustable shelves. I used birch plywood for the frame and shelves and 1/4” birch for the back. I covered the plywood edges on the front with some pine. My daughter picked out the stain which is mahogany. She wanted it to match some of the other furniture in the room that had a cherry finish. I didn’t think it would match well, but it did. I stained the boards and then removed the excess stain immediately and then sprayed on four coats of poly. This little project gave me a chance to try out the Jig It shelving jig I had recently purchased. It’s going to take a little practice, but it does a good job and is really easy to use. I do have a question for you guys though. After I stained the inside of the box, the pin holes really showed up. I used a Q-tip to apply the stain to the holes. Do any of you do this or do you just leave them bare? I think the next shelves I do, I’ll use the Pin Supports. It’s a little more money, but it would sure look a lot better.
and….... the main reason I’m posting this project is to get that photo of the bag of wood chips off my home page.
