This wall shelf is one of the few projects i actually intended to be for me. It seems that lately im always making things for other people or giving some stuff away. I needed a shelf for my living room for 3 decorate skull heads that i have. I had them places on a ledge by my window but my cats kept knocking them over and eventually broke the 3rd skull i have, im in the process of fixing it now but i wanted them away from my cats reach. The wall shelf itself i made with an Asian influence. I used cherry for the two side pieces a, a beautiful piece of walnut with quilted grain patterns for the cross bar, and i solid slab of walnut for the shelf top. In order to secure the shelf top to the bottom half i used a combination of glue and screws drilled in through the top. I did not want any ugly screw holes to be shown and i knew that i would never have the need to take it apart, i decided to hide the screws by making decorative butterfly inlays using maple. This project was a fun build for me i didnt have a time clock ticking down on me to finish it so i was able to take my time and just have fun. I also got to just design as i go and figure it out instead of planning every thing before hand which i do not always like to do but sometimes its fun to just go for it and see where your hands and mind take you. I hung it up using a french cleat.
