This guy comes up and requests that I make him a shelf to display his knife collection. I asked what he wanted it to look like? He said, rugged, full of character, yet something his wife would let him have in the house. Then he picked up a piece of rough sawn walnut I had laying around and said, “Use something like this!” He didn’t even want the edges of the back jointed. It is made from walnut and red oak. Best I could tell, he wanted a rough old cobbled up crate.
Well, this is what I came up with. Is it rugged enough, have character, and will his wife let him bring it in the house?
