In contrast to the months that it usually takes me to finish a project, this one only took a couple of weeks.
My wife wanted a ladder shelf for the living room. All of the ones that our friends and family had looked really cheap and flimsy. I knew we would be having kids in the future and I couldn’t stand the thought of the abuse such a cool piece of furniture might have to endure.
This shelf was hocked together using many, many, many wood screws. I hid them on the side with walnut dowels. The rest of the screws are underneath.
Each shelf is a different size and each shelf is a slightly different distance from the wall. They all line up in a straight line. If you look at the ladder shelf from the side, you’ll see three different lines originating from the tip, and coming down at different angles.
Finish is BLO and oil base polyurethane.
I think it turned out pretty good.
