A simple floor standing kitchen shelf.

Eastern white pine and the same buried under plastic laminate.

Double notched construction, brass screws in cups. T&T oil, shellac and wax.


.
Pine is the wood that other woods kick sand in the face of down at the beach,
and this will get beat up too, pretty sure.
Oh well.


.
24” x 42” x 16”
About 30 hrs.
Build on LJ’s.

Very nice Giene, I agree pine gets kicked around a lot but this shows how nice it can look. The only things people hate worse is plastic laminate but it’s a great choice for the kitchen. I think its a great looking shelf that will hold up for years.

I agree with Paul that plastic laminate is the right choice for the shelves (in the kitchen). It will not get permenant stains and cleans easily.

Nice design, fine construction = great project that’s not only practical, but no doubt promotes domestic tranquility.

I like your double notch method, that will prevent the screws from acting as hinges and prevent it from racking forward or backward. I’ll have to borrow that method.

I also like this color combination of the laminate and pine.

Simplicity is not always as easily achieved as it appears but it is always a worthy goal.

Another well done project with good clean design and excellent craftsmanship.
The pine front edge detail is very nice and the rabbet on the rear posts is subtle.

Very nice design Gene, I like the graduated shelfs. +1 what ShaneA said. Every piece can’t be Gabon Ebony with madagascar burl inlay, lol. I personally like pine and often build with it. I think its a great wood for building peacefully – lot less stressful for novice woodworkers to approach than say a piece of prized mahogany. It has its place and in colonial America many fine pieces were constructed from eastern white, so it certainly fits in your kitchen. I hope it does its job well for you, your daughter seems to have already found a use for it :-)

I like it, reminds me of a design from the 50s but more sophisticated.

You are amazing.
The design, style, execution, and photography is superb.

Thanks for the inspiration (and the smile; say hello to your daughter),
