Our Daughter and husband just updated their kitchen with new custom cherry kitchen cabinets. A job way over my head!
She ask me to make her a shelf from some leftover crown molding and other random cut off’s. The wood already had a finish on it. I made the French Cleat system to attach it to the wall.

Looks good, joints look dead on.

Kevin,
I only have an 8” chop saw so I used my table saw for that cut. They did come out well!
Thanks!

WS the shelf looks great but I think you aren’t giving your self enough credit, if I can do it you can too. :) If you look through my projects you’ll find where I just got through putting in a new maple kitchen for my moms and dads house, though it did take me 3 months to complete due to me solo.

MonteCristo,
When I see the smaller projcects posted here I look at my cut off wood bin and think this could be a gold mind for some of the people that make the smaller items. I just can’t part with it.

Randy …
Your right! I only said it that way because … just making the stools I made a while ago took up all the room in the shop. I’m really lacking work space. What’s worse is a few year ago I had a good size shop that I built before I moved.

Kiefer,
I use the French Cleat as offten as I can! I hung all our conrice board that way too!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments!
Tony

A super nice shelf. I like the French Cleat system. It’ll never fall off the wall for sure.

Wow awsome job on shelf. How did you put it together? i do not see any nail holes outstanding job. I made one out of painted molding. I used finishing nails and glue. Thanks

Qmoney,
I added two more pictures to show you how I put all the parts togeter. I put a saw cut in the stock and then used some hard wood to make some thin splines. make sure the spline grain runs perpendicular to the stock . The pictures will show you how it all goes together.
I used this method to put the top shelf on also.

Again, Thank you everyone for all the nice comments!
