Default Trying to put it together

Had an order for an oak display unit. Was told it had to be 28 x 34 x 7 and have 4 shelves that would hold at least 5 x 7 picture frames. The rest was up to me. Damn, I hate having to think.

Started fiddling with Aspire and came up with this.



I then glued up 3 pieces of 1 x 6 x 36 oak boards - put it on the machine and got this.



Added the shelves with my new K4 Kreg pocket hole gizmo



Assembled it came out as this



Some oak stain and 4 coats of Poly we have .................

Looks very nice. You did a wonderful job on it. Is this to hang on the wall ,or sit on the floor? I like the design.

Going to sit on the floor with the lady's great grandchildrens' pictures on it and all the other family pics around it. She ran out of room.

You should try thinking more often from the looks of that.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
