Dorm shelf. Saw one son’s roommate had. Think they throw their phone on there and maybe a snack. I was challenged to make one. Can’t let that go….

Base is built just like a drawer. Single half blind dovetail. Had to figure out how to groove thin boards. Fun little project. Wood was scraps from other projects.

Used 1/4’ 20 threaded inserts and t handles to secure. Drilled a 17/32 hole in the center of 3/4” dowel material and used the t handle to tap a thread in the section of dowel. On the end we applied 3/4” felt pads. Typically we have this for the bottom of chairs.

Sprayed a couple coats of shellac and applied wax. Build your own!
