I started this project at New Vitae/ Limeport PA in 1996, I think the wood was Maple, not sure about the corner molding, I used a router the groves to put the shelves, I also used small pieces of wood, for support in the corners. I used cherry stain, but due to a pick-line in my left arm, due to Lyme. I was no loner able to finish the project.
17 year later, I bought some Poly and put 3 coats to finally finish the Wild Wood Plant Shelf.

I must say that 17 yrs. is a long time to let your Cherry stain dry.
Glad you finally got it finished, it looks Great and like it belongs on that wall.
Nice Job!!

hey nonickswooks. yes 17yrs does seems like a long time for my Cherry stain to dry, strange thing is I am still trying to figure out how the shelf stayed with me during the 17yrs,moving etc., in 02’ had THR, then again in 13’.
Since I was not able to do much this past year, I figured it was about time I finished the shelf, it looks 100%
different/ better then just plain Cherry stain. Yes I agree it belongs on that wall.
I do not know if you/ anyone else noticed there is a piece of drift wood top shelf
(with stone embedded- not seen).
I will try to take photograph of the driftwood with natural stone embedded.
