On a whim today I went to Lowes to check my schedule next week and decided to grab a 6ft piece of pine to make a shelf. It is 4 feet long and I made 2 brackets out of the left over 2ft and cut them out on a bandsaw and mitersaw. And just for funsies I put a v-groove on it with my router. It’s all glued except for the screws in the wall. It’s nothing special but I thought it was time I chime in on here with something I made :)

You work at Lowes? I’d never get my paycheck to the bank.

Looks like a perfectly good shelf to me!

Shelf brackets are where I started out many years ago. Be careful, this can be addicting. Nice job.
