Project Information

Not only because people here encouraged me to be more confident but I myself like this shelf.
Don't tell me there are just not many places to mess up...

The shelf board is birch and the posts are African mahogany.

My goal for this project was to improve hand plane quality on figurad wood as I had a super hard time doing it on curly maple in the past project.
Hopefully, I feel a little more comfortable when I have to face with maple next time.

Anyways, the credit should go to the beauty of the grain than my simple craft skill for this one.

What I do with my table saw, routers, planer etc is woodworking. After watching the video, I can see that this is craftsmanship and skill.
Great job on an elegant little project

Thank you! it's more like what you do is a highly efficient pro woodworking and what I do is playing around with wood!

Thank you! After I saw your modern floating shelves, I was going to do the similar thing on mine but it took me forever to make a plan that I can like. So I ended up with a simple style that I originally planned. I like how it came out:)

I really like the look and design well done. Though can it be called floating if it has brackets? ;)

Thank you! Oh I didn't know the exact term of the floating shelf, haha so now it's some kind of a wall shelf!!
