It wasn't much, but I finally did a little woodworking. These shelves are to display stuff, mostly my toy tractor collection in our home office. There were some existing pine shelves in one location and I decided to replace those and add more around the top of the room. In all I added about 18' of shelving. We chose the brackets because they go with the ceiling fan we installed last year. The shelves themselves are are red oak finished with Minwax Polycrylic waterborne poly which has about 6 drops of Transtint Honey Amber dye added to give the wood some color.
