Antique shelf from the “Stone axe” century. Made without any metal nails! Only wooden nails, like in the old times, like made all by axe. BUT woven mesh from the

Ecological woodfinish made in several techniques, all natural.
Hangers made from the natural hemp, using the old technology and old methodic. All natural, useful – no decoration!

Very soon I’ll make the blog for making this shelf. Please, wait a little!

Very interesting treatment on the wood, and I like the way no modern implementations like screws are used. Very rustic indeed, goes back to the beginning of woodworking, when craftsmen had be be very creative in their joinery.

WAIT!, is that two nails I see in the stile of the last photo? Huh!
