Hi. You might remember my black walnut project from a while back, tree fell, harvested, milled, bowls turned and coffee table built. Anyway, I held back some thicker pieces with the original idea of making a bar top. But it's not really practical for where I live, and I didn't want it to sit in the basement collecting clutter. I do, however, use my desk at my home office every day, so I decided to make a desktop, with the help of a woodworker friend. More on the desk later...

I have two particular leftover pieces, sanded thickness will probably end up at 1 5/8". I think they would make really beautiful shelves.

I've always loved those 'floating' shelves where you can't see the brackets. But can that be done with thick, heavy shelves like this? How do you do that?

Thank you!

Here is Phase I of the desk. This is the very last of the thick wood, so I know there are some parts that are problematic or less than ideal. But I think it can/will be a beautiful desk I will enjoy every single day. :icon_smile:
