    Pantry Shelving

    I finally got time to finish some pantry shelving my wife had been wanting. They sat in the shop like this for way to long.

    There's not a lot of room due to the dryer door, but I managed to get a 9" deep, 6 shelf unit in the laundry room. Still have some sheetrock holes to fix where I took an existing wire shelf down and modify the alarm power supply, but loml is very happy with them.

    This was my first project from the cherry lumber I got off craigslist this spring.

    Nice work Jeb. I like the subtle curves.

    I agree with Mohammad. The curves are a nice touch.

    Thanks for the comments I haven't been doing this as long as a lot of you guys, so I try and make every project something new, with it's own challenges. Sometimes that leaves things a little overkilled for their purpose.

    This one was supposed to have tapered legs also, but the stock moved all over the place when I cut it, so only ended up with enough left for straight legs once I got it glued up and back flat. First time I've used of a hollow chisel mortiser, tallest hardwood piece I've made.

    No, that's not something that needs accessed very often. It's better to be hard to get to anyway.

    I had some sketches working shelves around it, but didn't like the way they looked so I just went with this.
