Household 6 had this really neat folding rought iron Shelve system that was destroyed in our recent move from Alaska. The wood shelves were made of MDF and were exposed to some moisture along the way. She wanted to throw the shelves out but I thought it would be a great opporunity to use up some scrap Red Oak I had in the garage. This thing looks nothing like it did before I started. It looks so great now and the folding function is still intact. If I ever see another set of shelves like this again, I will buy it in a heartbeat and swap the wood out. By the way, if any of you happen to know of a good place to buy Exotics, rough cut or other great woodworking shops in the southern California/LA area/Inland Empire I’d love to hear from you!

This is beautiful. What a great idea for those second-hand shelf units you can find everywhere. Great!
