On Thanksgiving Day Charlie and I finished the shelves we began last weekend.
We had already made the frames.
The next task was to cut the wood for the shelves. First we ripped 1/2 inch from the long edge so the shelves would be slightly recessed. Then they were cut to size and lightly sanded.
We measured the placement for the shelves then drilled holes to hold the shelf supports.
We cut luan for the back which we were planning to paint the wall color.
Instead we used the “A” side just as it came, no paint or stain, and tacked it on with the pneumatic nailer.
We stacked the shelves on top of one another.
These shelves are meant to be removable if necessary but we put one screw through the upper section into the wall to stabilize the entire unit.
Finally I put a few decorative items on the shelves. Toilet paper will be stored on the bottom shelf.
We’re feeling pretty happy about how these shelves turned out.
Have you finished a longstanding project?
