After building a 14’ft rowing skiff, I set about on a design for a smaller version for my office. This one features Mahogany for the breasthook, transom, inwale and outwales, and the shelf edges. Beadboard Pine was used for the back, and Maple for the shelves. The sides are painted plywood. The shaping on the breastboard (the arrowhead looking nose piece) and the transom (bottom piece) were done freehand with an angle grinder. This one was a hit, so I made several for gifts and have sold several more.

It seems like at some point Carleen brought something like this home. As I remember it this one makes it look really cheap and superficial. Or just plain cheap. That is a really fine looking shelf set.

This is a well done boat shelf. It extrudes workmanship.
