My first paycheck after being laid off from a hospital in Ashland, KY. The customer needed a shelf built to contain his cable box and dvd player since they were hanging off the fireplace mantel. The wood used is cherry, finished with arm-r-seal. The wood was planed down to 3/8’s of an inch due to space clearance requirements. The shelf is attached to the wall using the center key hole. I wasn’t sure where the studs were so I made three, the two on the sides are sixteen inches apart on the narrow side.

That’s an eye-catcher and a nice box as well : )

Looks like it turned out well.

Nice looking box and I think you just gave me a solution to my set up in the kids bedroom.
