this is a shelf unit for holding small oil bottles, the lady who ordered this is a doterra oils representative, this little unit will hold 95 bottles,it is made of heart pine and the back is birch plywood, the sign on top is walnut laminated over a piece of cypress , the the whole thing has several coats of poly over it.the bottom two shelves slide in and out.and i did apply some chestnut stain over the wood, it gave it a deeper color then normal, thank you for taking the time to look. grizzman

Wow! Grizz, that’s gorgeous! I must admit I’ve never heard of Doterra Oil. What is it used for?

That is a super display, Grizz. I really like the top where you used the 2 woods to give definition to the name. This could be a whole new venue for you ;-)

That’s a nice job Grizz, but you need to come clean buddy, you made it to hold your supply of miniature liquors you drink with those sausage and kraut sandwiches. lol
Well done Grizz

Very cool, Grizz !

How hot DID your Forstner big get, by the time you were through ? ;-)

I, too, love the lettering, and … since I imagine you free-hand routed it … am endlessly impressed. I can’t even WRITE MY NAME that nicely !

She’ll be thrilled …. :-)
