Yes, the back is lap joints. It’s 1/2” thick. I tried down to 3/8”, just thought it was too thin.

Nice shelves and great colored wood. You are so lucky to be right in the middle of BK Pine and have your own mill. You can cut the natural edge however you want it and pick and choose the best looking wood for your projects. That’s a real advantage over us who have to pick lumber off the shelf at HD. Hope the wood you sell is as nice as the wood in your projects. What is the finish on these shelves and can you show detail of the lap joints?

You really are the King of the Beetle Kill Pine.

Do you have your own crew of beetles you keep on payroll to make such great looking wood?
Very nice looking work you do!!!
Thanks for giving us a look.

One thing that is really cool about your work is that you take the wood from ‘devastated’ trees and make it into something beautiful and useful. You kick beetle butt!
