I have been wanting to build a shelf for sometime in order to clear up some of the clutter that has accumulated around my desk/bookshelf/floor. I traveled to Dixieline Lumber Co to see what kind of options of wood they would have. When I found a worker to ask for help, I immediately asked if they had any hardwood scraps. He found this beautiful piece of Mahogany and gave it to me free of charge! Later that same day, I purchased some black angle brackets and put the shelf together in a matter of a few hours. The end result is a very simple but elegant wood shelf that is situated above my bed. Read Less

 The board measures 5' long x 9" wide
 And it is 1 1/2" thick
 The wood took no other means of preparation, so I was able to get right to placing the brackets on.
 I got to bust out my new power drill to build this!
 Pretty simple construction
 A different array of books fits quite nicely
The chipped end was almost cut off by the lumber guy, but I wanted to keep it because I knew it would give the shelf some character 
 The shelf can hold a substantial amount of items which clears up a lot of space for me
