My wife wants to move her sewing table into our bedroom so that has brought about a few changes. To get the table in the TV has to go someplace but it can’t leave the room.

This is one of those spur of the moment deals where I took a few measurements and headed to the shop. Looking around I decided to use 1×4’s that once served as bed slats and a piece of 7/16 OSB that was left over from building my benches.

The shelf is now hanging from the ceiling joists with a first fresh coat of polly. I will do at least two more coats. The next time you see this one it will be in the projects board.

That ought to take care of the problem. Did you torch it? Neat design.

Tom, yes I torched it. I thought I would do something I had not seen done in long time.

I hope to have it done this weekend.
