Here is a few pic of a mantel shelf I made for my mom using only a circular saw, router, 1/4 sheet sander, and a coping saw. The finish is a water base milk paint the color is sage green.

It’s always fun to see what YOU (BWW) can create, with only a small amount of tools available. Nice job, as always.

Very Nice CJ. I see she already has it filled with family memories.

I suspect, now that you have the new saw, there will be many more projects made for her and all of your family.

Hey Charles,

Nice mantel and it looks like you finished it just in the nick of time! Boy does your Mom have a lot of pictures! Nice job. What material did you use?
