This is more of that cedar from a friend. I wanted to make this look more like a mantel than a shelf, but I didnt really achieve that. I did get some great advise on how to hollow out the log supports and mount them from another LJ buddie, (ken90712) but I can’t do it. Not just yet anyway, so I hung it like this. My chiesels are all dull from using them on the concrete floor scraping the varnish off. I guess I could get them sharpened and try it again later, but for now it’s hung with screws and washers and it’s tight.
Not much to say about this one. It’s joined together with biscuits and glue and a few hidden screws from underneath, just incase. I peeled the bark off, sanded it down and just clear coated it with varnish. I like it. It gives more of that rustic feel to the cabin. Thanks for looking.
