36 ½” wide, 11” deep, 7” high
Walnut, sapele, brass rod, tinted epoxy
- The walnut was cut down 25 years ago and air dried in a barn for all that time. Really nice to work with and has some great color.
- Joinery: the sides are connected to the top with a sliding dovetail and the bottom with through dovetails. I was able to machine cut the dovetails in the sides but needed to hand cut the pins – first time doing that. The second side is definitely better than the first.
- First time doing a build-off – that was a ton of fun! Social media is a nice way to connect people participating in a solitary hobby… but having everyone building at the same time takes it up a notch!
- This shelf is in the eating area of our kitchen – it’ll be the place that holds all the phones and tablets so we can have a real conversation during meals.
