OK, I’m gonna try and post my projects in (roughly) chronological order. This has to go back a few years, but due to my work schedule the number of projects is rather small, but starting to grow! Back to task: this shelf was one of my very first projects while I was working at the cabinet shop. The boss would leave to go bid or measure a job and we would all pull our personal projects out from behind the scrap pile and work on them for a bit while he was out. The shelf is out of red oak, no stain, and finished with spray lacquer. Overall dimensions are approx. 24” long, 12” high, and 8” wide. I laid out the curves using the old coffee cans we used for screws and whatever else but they came out almost perfect. I admit it’s a very simple piece but for some reason I’ve always been inordinately pleased with it. Something about the proportions perhaps. Currently hung over my commode in the powder room.

Great looking shelf.

Is one side taller than the other , or is it the camera angle ?

Both sides are symmetrical. The camera angle is a little skewed, sorry. I’ll try to get a better shot up sometime.

I didn’t know if it was just a “unique “design : ) Well done .
