Wednesday Woodworking – it pulls out

Shelves have been taking up most of my time in shop.  I completed the prototype and have installed it in the closet. The shelves are made from melamine board.  I used this because the melamine has a nice finish for a shelf, requires no painting and was about half the price of plywood.  It cuts just like plywood but is a bit heaver.  The only problem I have with it is that the edges chip easily and it’s to damage it when handling.  On the good side, no painting and doing the edge banding was a snap.

 

The bits and pieces for doing the edging.  And that's my iron, not my wife's.

That’s it for this week.  Next weekend I have nine more to do to finish the closet.

If you need me – I’ll be in the shop.
