I made this simple shelving unit for inside my son’s wardrobe.

I was going to use MDF but knew I would rather work with timber, even if it is only pine. I milled the stock from some lengths of 2×8. Box joints on top cut with a router jig, simple dados for the shelves and a couple of drawer runners out of some hardwood offcuts to house a wire drawer for his socks and jocks, no metal fasteners.

It was a quick and practical project and I’m happy that it all came together fast and square. The finish is danish oil and wipe-on poly.

Looks nice. Better than anything I’ve ever done with pine.

Very nice and simple. Great box joints. Looks good, and will be functional.

nothing wrong with pine. (though our oine here in NZ is sightly different) still nothing wrong with pine.
