Beginning week before last, the wife and I (and our Granddaughter) headed to Dallas, Tx to visit with my Daughter and Son-in-law. My Daughter had sent me a picture of some window treatments she found on Pinterest, or something, that she asked if I could make. I made them and when we went up there, I hung them up for her. We just got the supports up. They needed to order the 3/4x8' wood dowels (HD/Lowes only had 4 footers). And they need to paint and stain the shelves. I painted one set for her living room and stained one set for her study/library, so that they would be ready to hang, when we got there. Up to them to paint/stain the shelves and dowels. A 3/4 dowel goes through each hole in each support, to hang sheers. And then a 6" wide shelf on the white ones and an 8" shelf on the stained ones.

Anyway, here's a pic of them before they were stained/painted in my shop, and then hanging up in their respective rooms. This was the first job I really got to use my new Muscle Chuck. Let me tell ya, I can kick myself for not getting it sooner!!! Made things a whole lot easier and faster!! Love that new tools!!

It is a Router Workshop project that you should of seen from the series Lee. The backing piece gets a dovetail slot, the support piece gets a sliding dovetail that goes into the back and has a sliding dovetail on the top that the cap dovetail slot slides over to form the complete assembly with no glue or fasteners except wall anchors to attach the backing piece to the wall.
