Hey Guy’s I decided to share an older job that I found while transferring my files to my new computer I did these shelves for a fellow out at work before I was doing woodworking as a business, The narrow shelf was to extend a kitchen island and the wider one to fit an adjacent wall to be used as a desk and both to fold down after use and the terms were interesting as they needed to be done and installed in one week!!! This was even before I built my new shop, and had HVLP equipment!! The shelves are 3/4” oak plywood and edged with solid oak wood stained with Minwax stain and finished with Minwax Helmsman polyurethane. Brackets are from Rockler.

Was a fun project indeed
