I would do jobs like this all day every day if they were available.  We were done before the turkey was.

well Lyndsey the trauma nurse from the city, sent these from the wood they got.  she had a baby in the meanwhile.  she and her husband are happy with a turnbuckle style brace as they did not want to disturb the live edge underside of the mantle shelf.



 

 

ERC that could have been firewood.

She paint those turnbuckles, and what keeps it from tipping one way or the other? Looks like a delicate balance but it must not be. (?)

I had recommended/described to them, pins in the wall for a floating shelf, so I think that is the case.  I may have oriented the flat edge towards the wall.  I will ask, but she is happy .

did this for my wife.  we are fixing up the basement, and this is to be the woman cave to do quilting and stained glass.  I am doing things different than I might normally.  we installed vinyl flooring since this is in the basement.  I bought a butcherblock counter that is finger jointed blocks of "hardwood"  but it comes ready to stain, and I have plenty of other projects going.  We went to just look, and this fit with a 1/2 inch to spare.  we can quickly get some finish on it and she is good to go.  would have taken me weeks to make one.





We were going to do ceramic with a wood look.  we have heat in the floor so that would be better.  but we can install this ourselves one room at a time.  If we have a water issue, should do ok.  to do ceramic, we had a lot of the 1 foot square tiles to take up first.  this is fast, can move stuff around, and less mess.  touched up the trim and reinstalled it.  the cabinets came with the house, good quality, and we move them around as needed over the past 20 years.  I will trim the top with an ash "back splash".  around the window trim and ends.

Lindsey says they put L brackets into the stud and on top of the shelf.  Her hubby is not a woodworker.  but they are happy.  I would have done a 1/4 inch lag with the head cut off, and slid it on.  I like the warehouse/steam punk vibe of the buckles.

I think the customer put the flat edge out to showcase the contrasting sap wood. It is a simple nice looking shelf.

Maybe you could put it back on your mill to edge it and give a more secure wall mounting. ;D

my buddy Dallas needed more room to hang and display all the sheds he has found.  He spreads manure and also hunts and traps.  We were going to do a 3 foot rail, then he decided he wanted more room to display stuff.  He is trading me the bobcat so I can get it mounted.



 

 

 

 

 

and here is a resident Dr. Carson who has taken up blacksmithing, and needed a stump.   cut with a flare for stability.  referred to me by the director of Pediatric Intensive Care at the Wesley Children's Hospital Dr. Smith (and a friend of over 30 years).



 

and yes, the flags were included in the shot.

and finally, my cousin Mike.  you may remember the bar top and stair treads.  installed the treads and risers today, and did a fill at the corner miter.

Dallas has gone crazy with the ERC, and is starting to hang his collection back up.  the reason he wanted a great background.



 

He had a friend that wanted some so he got 40 bucks for the left over wood.

he added a shelf
