Here is a project I did that takes natural edge to a whole other level. This is the first cut off of a slab cut log, so the entire bottom of the shelf is the natural side of a Juniper tree. It’s flat cut on the back, and steel hardware was used to fasten it between two studs in the wall. I sandblasted the natural bottom, hand sanded the top, and finished with teak oil. Excuse the dry wall dust in some of the pictures, this was a new construction home. I’m pretty proud of the shelf, but sorry to say, that’s not my mule deer.

You did a nice job on that shelf and it’s a perfect spot for that deer.

Great looking shelf. I’ve never seen one similar.
