It was my mother who wanted a copy of a nice shelf hanging on the wall of her aunt. I was barely starting my new hobby as a woodworker, and had just purchased my first table saw for beginners ($99), and I saw this as an opportunity to start with the right foot on my woodworking, and use something other than pine for it…

She sure liked it! As did I! She even liked it better than the original!!!

:-D

It looks great, especially with the beer steins on it. -SST

Looks like a classic! Must be hard to cut all those curves on your new table saw.

A very good creation with your first band saw. No wonder it has pleased your mother.

Thanks for all your comments!!!

Now this is what I used, besides my table saw…

All the curves were cut with a jigsaw I purchased for less than 30 bucks, and I refined it with a drum sander attachment for my hand drill…

I used red oak, and red oak stain, finishing with some wiping polyuretane, and wax at the end…

:-D

Have your say...
