My first woodworking project. $150 in tools and about $30 in materials yielded two picture rails, each six feet in length. Completed one end-to-end on a Saturday as a prototype, and a second the following day. The latter came out much nicer, and faster.

Great looking shelf.
Hey, is the dog in the picture the same one walking around with the ball?
Too cute.

Great idea and execution for a photo shelf. Looks like you started out like everone else. Before long you’ll have a garage or basement full of tools. Love the dog and the dog painting too!

@Vicki Thanks! I wish this site allowed more than 6 pictures, so I could show more details of the execution. I’m anxious to get more tools too… If only I had a garage or basement!

Have your say...
