Hey Lumberjocks its been a long time since i have posted anything on lumber jocks. I wanted a place to put my boxes and stuff that i have built, in the last couple of years. I was going to put up a plain shelf and i said why not a mantle. So i bought some crown molding and i used some pine i had laying around and painted it with white gloss paint.

Thanks for looking.

it’s a very nice shelf and a fine way to display your work. I don’t have too many ways to display my projects at home so I am thinking of something similar for my office.
