Small simple shelf for hanging sunglasses/keys and putting small things in. My wife had been asking me to make one of these for sometime. Finally got around to it over the holidays. It’s made from maple that I salvaged from a dresser that someone was throwing out in the neighborhood. (I try to use as much salvaged wood as possible) Stained a dark brown to match the other things in the doorway. 4 coats of semi-gloss water based polyurethane.
