This shelf is made out of cherry that was cracked and eaten by worms. The crack gave me a chance to make Nakashima-style butterfly keys, which are walnut. The dovetails were all cut by hand. The hardware, which I got from Rockler, consists of two rods attached to the wall and fed through holes drilled through the back of the shelf. This piece was displayed in the Tennessee State Museum and was featured in Fine Woodworking.
