This is a shelf I made for my sister for her birthday. It is made out of curly mahogany.I didn’t know there was such a thing but it sure looks curly to me and it’s definitely mahogany so I’m calling it curly mahogany.I made all the trim on it. The top crown cove piece I made on the table saw. All the shelfs are sliding dovetails. The back was made from old mahog flooring i had gotten from a job. The top bottom and sides are doweled in place. No metal on this one. Thanks for looking would love to hear your opinions.

Very nice. I’m building a 5 shelf for my son right now out of red oak. I like the clean lines on yours.

Looks great, like the top and the base. Beautiful wood and joinery. I am sure your sister appreciate it.

Have your say...
