I am a fan of visiting local breweries, buying a growler for later use and of course drinking their beer. Of the course of time I have collected a number of growlers and decided they would be fitting in my pool table room where a lot of beer gets drank any ways. I had some red oak left over from my hay-rake table project which I used for the corbels and went out and bought a single 4×8 sheet of red oak plywood from Lowes for the actual shelving. This project moved fairly quickly because of the simplicity of the joints and cuts. I was a bit of a task to ensure the continuous shelf was level all the way around. I learned that there is a low point in the ceiling!! I pleased with how it came out. I used Mini-Wax “provincial brush-on stain and sealed it with shellac in a HPLV spray gun. Now I have a spot to place and display my growler collection from all over the southwest! The last picture is of small coffee/tea shelf I build with some extra material left over. Built in the same manner as the pool table shelf. Lots of dowels!

Great idea, it looks good and well installed. Can’t beat additional storage. Like the dowels. Great work!
