This Is a project I finished a few weeks ago, and the friend Vipond33 reminded me that had to share…

Shelf made ​​of eucalyptus (Eucalyptus grandis) and cancharana (Cabralea oblongifoliola), both semi lightweight and easy to work.
Half lap joints made ​​with the bandsaw and finished with a chisel.
It has a mirror inside, although you could also post a picture.
Above and below the mirror the mirror are the holes for the screws for wall mounting. On the back put a 1/8’’ HDF to protect the mirror, attached with four screws.
The finish is a commercial wax (not the finish I wanted to give, but time was pressing and it was what I had on hand).
A simple and delicate design that can be exploited in many ways with simple changes (look at the friend Vipond33 and tell me).

I hope you enjoy and inspire.
Greetings.
Martin

Este es un proyecto que terminé hace algunas semanas, y el amigo Vipond33 me recordó que debía compartirlo…

Estante realizado en madera de eucalipto (Eucaliptus grandis) y cancharana (Cabralea oblongifoliola), ambas semi livianas y fáciles de trabajar.
Juntas a media madera realizadas con la sierra sinfin y terminadas con formón.
Tiene un espejo en su interior, aunque también se podría colocar una fotografía.
En el marco del espejo están las perforaciones para colocar los tornillos para el montaje en la pared. En la parte posterior coloqué un HDF de 3mm para proteger el espejo, fijado con cuatro tornillos.
La terminación es cera comercial color roble oscuro (no es la terminación que quería realizarle, pero el tiempo apremiaba y era lo que tenía a mano).
Un diseño simple y delicado que puede ser explotado de muchas maneras con simples cambios (miren el del amigo Vipond33 y me cuentan).

Espero que les guste y le sirva de inspiración.
Saludos.
Martín

I like it too but I think it was made long before I posted. either that or he’s a busier beaver than I am.
The mirror is a nice touch and the extra depth is too. I wish I had easy access to those lovely woods you have used.

Lew: is not an adaptation of Vipond33’s shelves. Is only a coincidence that we both did something similar.

Gene: I made my shelves on april, second week maybe. I wasn’t very busy too post it, but for question of priorities… well. Thanks for the comments, are welcome. I wish too had acces to those lovely woods you have… lol

EXCELENTE TRABAJO MARTÍN, TE FELICITO!!!!!!
UNA VEZ COMPRÉ CANCHARANA PARA UN CLIENTE Y LE HICE UN MARCO PARA UNA PUERTA CORREDIZA: PARECE UN CEDRO Y CON BARNÍZ INCOLORO SE OSCURECIÓ UN POCO Y QUEDÓ HERMOSA ;-)
