Default Mountain shelf

My oldest daughter wanted a shelf to hold her essential oils. She told her younger sister about one she saw on etsy. My youngest and I tackled the project together so she could give it to her sister for her birthday. We made it from rough cedar fence boards that I planed down to 3/8". The ones we saw online used 3/4" and looked a bit rough hewn. The thinner boards made clamping a challenge. Using pin nails, blue tape and an assortment of clamps eventually brought it all together. I was having a lot of trouble with the top peak when I remembered a trick I read about where you shoot pin nails into a the end of the board under low pressure then cut them off and use them like dowels to hold the position during glue up.The miter sled did a great job on the 30 degree angles. Finished it with shellac and wax.

I would think she's ecstatic about the outcome. Not your usual shelf and you made it your....rather hers. Very lucky young lady.
