This is just a small hang on the wall curio cabinet. I had bought this incredibly straight grained piece of Douglas Fir and thought I’d do something besides a box for a change. The wood itself is quarter sawn and a rich gold. The board was so straight that i only ripped to width and cross cut the lengths. I also only ripped the pieces when I laminated the crown and pedestal to glue on the piece, the wood was that straight and matched. The back is rabbeted with a 1/4” maple ply inset to stop future racking. It is attached with brass screws only so if someone wants, they can remove it for a different effect. The shelves are pegged with poplar for contrast. The overall dimensions are 19 3/4” x 14 1/2” x 5” with the crown and pedestal 2” longer and 1” wider to make the overhangs on the front and sides.
