    One day project - Shelf

    LOML wanted a shelf in the TV room to match the woodwork. Several on-line sources were consulted to get some ideas and prices A 4' shelf something like ours, painted, was $75!!!

    Off to the borg I go and about $30 and a few hours later we have a 6' shelf that fits right in.

    Just a couple of 1x4's and some off the shelf crown molding. Nothing special but the LOML is happy and I have $50 more in my pocket than I would have had!

    Nice shelf and good use of the "new" math.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Oh, you must mean 75 - 30 +50.

    Actually, there was tax and shipping involved, and that was for a 4' shelf, not a 6'.

    Took a little liberty.

    Win-win. Jan gets her shelf, and you get extra do-re-mi. Nice work too.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    Nice little project, Rennie. It's great when "the boss" is pleased with a small creation!
