Hello there,

This is a project I made for my mother this past Christmas. It was one of the first projects that I completed where I processed the wood all the way from a standing tree to a finished product. I used my grandpa’s old hand planes that my mother gave me a few years ago. It adds a nice story to the finished product. I got the design from, super easy and nice looking shelf. I wish I would have taken more pictures though out the project, lessons learned. Let me know what you think.

I agree on the doilies, but I already gave it to my mom, what can you do.

I thought you can never have too many doilies – oh wait, that’s clamps, never mind. Nice work.

I’m just hoping Spagnuolo discovers this and sees what a few doilies can do.
