This is the first piece of indoor furniture I have made, I’ve done lots of smaller sized scroll saw projects and some stuff for my workshop. It is four individual shelving units bolted together. I did it this way rather than making it a built in unit because we were not sure that this was going to be the permanent location for them and this way we can move them around and they don’t all have to go together.

They are made out of red oak finished with a couple coats of dark walnut danish oil. Everything went together pretty well, and most of my mess ups covered up pretty well… I’m happy with it and more importantly my wife is happy, so I’d say it was a success and I learned a lot from this.

Thanks for looking!!!

Nice job. Good idea in making them as seperate units; that makes them versatile for generations to come.
