About This Project

Reclaimed wood, unknown species

Using scraps I originally purchased from a Re-Use warehouse on my island (O'ahu), I put together two book display ledges for my daughter's bedroom. They are made with 2- 1x2s (lip and bottom) and 1- 1x4 (back).

I was able to make two 28 3/4" ledges from first cut to installation in the 3 hours my daughter had gone on a "field trip" with my mom and brother and surprised her with new book ledges when she got home. :)
