A couple quick projects that my wife requested for the kid’s bath. Both are QS white oak with Stickley Fayettville finish per Jeff Jewitt’s recipe. For the shelf / towel bar piece, the sides are attached with my 1st attempt at thru tenons. The top is just dowelled in place. For mounting, I added a slightly shorter hidden board so that it could be screwed to studs but could still place the shelf and visible attachment points where I wanted. The towel hook piece I copied from a coat rack that I really liked (and copied design elements into the shelf as well). The hooks are old and from eBay for the look I wanted.

Really nice project! I like your choice of hardware for the towel hooks; it complements your work very well.

I really like the staining job. It looks just like the Stickley Furniture – nice.
