  • Wacky Shelf

    I finished this project this weekend. The pattern is by Sue Mey and found in CWWC August 2013. I have wanted to make this for quite some time, but didn't have the right wood. The wood is 1 1/4" Maple, discarded by the local La-Z-Boy Chair manufacturer. The trim is 1/8" Walnut and Red Oak plywood backing. It measures approximately 9" x 12". I used FD Polar #9 blades and finished with spray Shellac. I can see this as a display for small items such as rings or whatever. Comments welcome.

      Thanks DW. Sue's design called for a block 2" thick, but with the backing it wouldn't fit the EX 21, so I went with 1 1/4" thick.

        I really like it Denny. Sorry to say though CWWC was gone before I found this hobby last year so no back issues for me to obtain the pattern from. I will check Sue Mey's site and see if it is offered on there. Awesome that you were able to get the wood as discarded from the Lazy Boy plant. Your use for it sounds like a good idea. Do you plan to sell it in the shop or use it there as a display? Thanks for sharing.

            Thanks Melanie. It is on display at ArtCrafters, but it may end up at home.

                    Every year for Christmas my wife renews my subscription to the magazine. This year she managed to subscribe to it twice. She thinks she was able to cancel one of the subscriptions but since it hasn't arrived yet she wonders if she managed to cancel both orders. Is there a way for us to find out if the...

                    I would be curious also. Back in March of 2014 the switch on my Delta quit working. Now last weekend it quit working again. Don't know if it's the switch or not. And of course I had a request from a friend of my wifes to cut something for a little girl. We've been talking about maybe getting a new scroll...

                    When I got all of my dads woodworking books, wood reference books and pattern books this was in with every thing and yes there a quite a few patterns in the three ring binder.
