My wife wanted an apple-motif shelf for a spot in our dining area, and saw one at a craft fair that she liked. In true woodworker fashion I said to her, “I can make one of those for you”
A few short years later…I finally did.
As you can see, it didn’t take all that long to fill it with nick-nacks. (is there a silent “k” in either of those words?)

This is a nice project and I know where you are coming from when you said you could build it. I say it all the time only to add to my ever increasing list. You did a good job on this. I am sure that there is a k in there someplace but just call them dust collectors, which is what my house is filled with.

Thanks for the post.
