Well friends this project was worked on and then it sat…..then sat…..then sat some more, but I am glad to have it finished and ready for holding my growing collection of galoot woodworking dvd’s, books and even some hand tools! My discovery in the arts of making spoons has indeed taken up some time in the other areas of learning, but I have no complaints on the interruptions knowing I am making solid contributions to additional skills.

It’s been a while if you have bothered to follow this journey so in short the output of this adventure details the following….

1.Box store pine.

2. All made by hand with my own design, including the chip carved pattern.

3. Sanded, followed by 2 coats of watco dark walnut danish oil, followed by 2 coats of shellac.

4. BLO for the final shine.

5. A nice smaller sitting shelf for keeping woodworking books and dvd’s…AKA (Woodright’s galoot library)

I look forward to some new fun ideas soon besides only spoon work, so I hope you may have enjoyed taking a look!

Thanks for stopping in, have fun and keep enjoying your craft!

A shelf worthy of your collection Joe. Love the design and the carving kind of says “I didn’t have to do this, but I can so I will.” Nothing wrong with that. Keep up the good work.

Nice design. I haven’t tried chip carving yet. My fingers don’t like working on small things with sharp objects.
