As usual, I was lacking in horizontal surfaces to house my latest pieces.
This time I decided to look for a solution that is quick and may be repeated anytime I’m short of shelving space.
When I saw this branch of camphor laurel in my shed, I came up with the following design.
Sliced the branch with the chainsaw. Sanded it a bit. Drilled grooves for the bottles. 2 coats of varnish, glued the bottles and ready to go.
2 hours’ work; 1 day for the glue to dry.
Pic 1 – ready to go.
Pic 2 – View on the top shelf
Pic 3 – With the items.

Best looking shelves I’ve seen in a long time. Plus you got to enjoy emptying enough beer bottles to make the shelf supports.

Really cool design Dave.
That wood is wild, and your bottle supports sets it off!
