The first pic is the first Paul Sellers project I made last year. A couple of months later I made the second one with a drawer. Both of these are meant to to be hung on a french cleat detail. The yellow and blue ones were made with scraps left over from over projects. That’s why they are different heights. All four were made entirely by hand. I bought the pine already S4S so I didn’t have to that dimensioning. Unfortunately, no one in the family wants them so they reside in what I call the boneyard – my downstairs den.

Very nice work – I’m really impressed: particularly because I’m working on a smaller version of the project, and running into a lot of “learning opportunities.” But it’s lots of fun, even the do-overs.

Your blue model makes me think I should tackle a floor-standing small bookshelf version next. Hmm…

I had some “learning” with these too. My through tenons on the second unit with the drawer look like rabbit ears. The second shelf twisted a little on me in the clamps and that effects the fit of the drawer. My dadoes got snugger as I made these with my best ones coming with the blue unit. I think what I took away from these is that I am capable of building something entirely by hand that looks good and is functional.
The colors are supposedly classic shaker. The yellow doesn’t look that good up close and it has three coats. Of the two, I like the blue one better.

Those look great and well made. They are great storage ideas. Great job!
