I finally decided to do something about the clutter around my lathe area; this was the result. I was up early this Saturday and started rummaging around the garage when I came upon a 4’ length of 1×12 pine and a 8’ length of 1×4 pine.
I guess I could have slapped it together with just flat stock and had been done with it; where would the fun be in that?
The shelf unit is 36” x24’; with the bottom shelf 6” wide and the upper 2 @ 3.5”. I cut the corbels at the bandsaw and rounded them over on the router table then added the Roman Ogee for the edge treatment on the other members. I applied a coat of Waterlox Sealer/Finish to keep the general grime at bay.
I had no real plan when I started just a desire to rid myself of an annoying problem and maybe add a little style to the area at the same time.
