A Whaletail shelf in Curly, Tiger Maple finished with Minwax stain mix, 75% Golden Pecan, 25% Golden Mahogany. I made this as a replacement for the shelf my wife picked up at a yard sale for a buck now hanging in my bedroom that has a few of my collectible items on it. I needed to make something to feel I was getting something accomplished as I continue working on multiple clocks for myself and family. The Curly Maple was actually a nice find at my local Home Depot as was some Tiger striped Red Oak I found there as well, turning that into a Mantle clock. Will post more as I finish.
