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.
