This was my first project since shop class in 7th grade (20 years ago)! Picked this beautiful shelf as a Christmas present to my husband to show off his hard-earned trophies from his ultramarathons (100+ miles of running). Next time I would make it a bit longer, and use end grain on the sides for a more even color. Came together easily, and can't wait for my next project! Picture is from Jay Dash Photography, of the Wasatch Mountains in Utah.
