I needed/wanted to practice my Mortise & Tenon, but didn’t know what to do that wouldn’t cost me too much money if I messed up. My brother gave me an oak pallet, so I decided to make a shelf. This is the display shelf. I didn’t draw it out, I just went with what was in my head at the time. It is now in my room, displaying my toys. My wife is happy now that most of my toys are picked up ;)

Any feedback is appreciated.

Thank You

Bought a mortising machine and tenon jig today and was looking for something to practice on. Thanks for the idea. I doubt if my first attempt will look this good.

Nice work!

Nothing wrong with a toy vehicle collection! Less money(?) and less room needed than for real ones!

I have seen toy tractors sell at auction for un-real prices! In fact, more than the real one would have brought!
