One of my LJ buddies pointed out I have been posting quite a few unfinished projects as of late. I thought I should post a finished one to prove that I do finish one from time to time.. lol.
My sister sent me a picture of a small shelf she had found somewhere and asked if I could make her one similar so she could place our moms and her son’s urns on it. Told her I would give it a go and since I had a bunch of pine scraps left over from other recent projects would use them so it wouldn’t cost her anything. Not sure what the style is (possibly craftsman or early caveman maybe) but it’s solid pine finished with Minwax provincial stain. Used pocket hole screws to attach the shelf spacers and dowel pins to back up the glue for the top shelf.

L2L- thank you buddy. Not too bad for pine which I usually have a tough time getting to take a finish

Jim- thank you sir. Seems to be pretty sturdy. Hope it will hold a couple of urns at

It looks so cool Buster. At first I thought you burned the grain with a torch. Nice design.
