after months of waiting. . . and waiting; my wife has finally gotten her kitchen shelves. A rainy day, excess cured lumber, and limited kitchen counter space was the perfect recipe for building shelves. We used some hackberry that had been in the bathroom. The bathroom rejected the hackberry and so it has gone to live in the kitchen. Reincarnated into shelves the hackberry gives a modern rustic, look adorned in stainless brackets and dark stain. The space saving use excellent from the pragmatic view and from the aesthetic stance they are genius. Thanks to my wife for the vision and the help building them.
