My friends Gene and Diane wanted a simple wall hung storage rack for their DVD collection . Made entirely from “leftovers” ....... 1/4” Birch beadboard , 1×6 Pine and my first attempt at my own moulding from Pine . I hate to stain or paint projects , but they wanted it to match some existing furniture pieces…... I added some heavy duty picture hangers to the back afterwards . The stain is ZAR Cherry . It was hard to capture the true color with the shoplights , but it is pretty close depending on your monitor settings . ....let me know what you think : )

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

Was the molding done using a Roman Ogee bit on the router? That is one of my favorite bits, nice job.

Thanks Ron

nicely done Dusty.
I’ve made something similar for my own house and need to make two smaller units for my oldest daughter’s room.
staining wood isn’t nearly as bad as painting it!

thank you for the comments , Gentlemen : )

Hello RAH , yes , I took a piece of 1”x 2.5” clear pine and made the profile with an Roman Ogee bit from Woodcraft ($5 special with 1/2” shank ) all the way around the piece….. I then ripped it in half , jointed the edges and brad nailed it to the box. Nothing fancy , just practice : ) thanks for asking !

Nice work. I really like the top. I am also glad to see that there are other LJ’s that have videos of Homer Simpson!
