I am moving in a few weeks and wanted to crank out just a few more projects before packing up my workshop. Here’s something I’m giving away again and on a Soldier’s income had to buy cheap material. I used pine 1×10 for the shelf and some chair rail for the trim work. I picked the best boards I could find at the local mega mart but still had to deal with cupped and twisted material. I came up with a design that would hide the joints so it didn’t matter if everything wasn’t 100% flush. There is a spacer cut to exact height between the shelves so the sides are a total of 1 1/2” thick. I was able to glue the sides on with the cup facing inward and then cover all the joints with the trim. So there are minimal nail heads exposed and it turned out to have a very clean appearance. For my first shelf not made of 2×4 and plywood i’m happy.
Thanks for checking it out.
