Project Information

Here's a project that is easy, inexpensive, and simple to make. I had that want to make something out of wood itch but didn't know what or had a plan. Seeing how like most of us, we have more request to build something than time this is what I chose. I made it for my daughter, who wanted a shelf on top of her chest-of-drawers. It's made this entirely from scrap laying around the shop in one afternoon. It is mostly made from Spruce Pine Fir, a piece of Oak plywood, some MDF, and 1/4" plywood. I used my Kreg jig to assemble the carcass and drawer. Used dado joints to make the drawer and stained the shelf with a black walnut color stain. The shelves are adjustable. The heart shape is easily made using a forstner drill bit, drill press and jigsaw. It can also be hung on the wall. I believe this design is called a "whalebone shelf", I saw it in a magazine best I can recall. Would like it if somebody could confirm or correct me about that thanks.
