That’s a whole lot of gluing together for shelves, but a beautiful outcome.

Building for my daughter is definitively something special, not sure what’s next, she’s only 2 months so this ones basically a diaper shelf.

I used 2 coats of boiled linseed oil let it soak for a day and then sprayed Semi-gloss Lacquer.

I really like Linseed oil for Curly Maple.

I just wish I had Powermatic equipment. I have a few Hatachi, Craftsman, Ryobi and Dewalt tools I used for this.

Have your say...
