A pair of bulge shelves….......

Found a picture of something like this on Pinterest and thought it was cool. I had a stack of 1/2” surfaced Maple from a Craigslist free listing. It was was stacked up in the grass next to the curb…..score!

No fine woodworking here but really a fun build.

Maloof finish was done before assembly and used 1/8” dowels to pin the joints rather than attempting to a messy glueup.

All the joints were cut before the curved fronts (Pic 5) so it generated a big pile of odd scraps:

Which were turned into a little bonus end grain chopping board:

Thanks for stopping by!

Nice score in the maple. That’s fantastic.

And good job with the curved shelves. Great idea.

Also who does not like a cutting board? Looks like fun to me.

My hat is off to you,

Jeff, I like it….brings to mind the ribs and keel of a boat build.

Nice, Jeff! You did that free maple lumber proud. I like the 5-rib one, and they do remind me of a boat, like jbschutz pointed out.
