This shelf is another item satisfying a need.
I designed and built it to blend with the medicine cabinet that I had built, but with this piece, along with the shaker and krenov influence, I added elements of the art deco style to it.
It’s 33” long by 14” tall by 10” deep
It has stopped dadoes and the housed part is notched on the front edge.
It’s black walnut with hard maple accents.
All the measurements used were taken from the golden ration shortened to 1.618 and rounded to the nearest fraction.
It’s hung using a hanging router bit to make a depression that accepts regular sheet rock screws.
It can accept two piles of towels and the third area can be used to house wash cloths, hand towels, or an accent piece such as a low vase with flowers
Thanks for looking

Now THIS is very cool and original!

Golden Ratio aside, I get a huge F.L. Wright feeling from this piece. I love the different woods and how they play against each other.

Excellent job!

To chhipa:
It’s the same as the medicine cabinet I made.
I worked at a cabinet shop for a year that had a VERY professional spray booth. I was the odd jobber and learn to spray finish along with everything else in the time I was there.
