Photo: New shelves built in May and finished in the first week of June once I received my key-hole router bit (for blind hanging).
Photo: #8 Ladder Shelf - made from a single piece of Laberge douglas fir. Stripped into three mini-boards and then rejoined using oak splices. No nails or screws in this piece
Photo: #8 Ladder Shelf - douglas fir, planned on the inside after ripping with aged outer bits and signs of a burning?
Photo: #8 Ladder Shelf detail on the joining using splines of hardwood, in this case oak.
Photo: #7A and B Ladder Shelves. The sides of these two shelves are made from one single piece of Laberge douglas fir stripped into four segments.
Photo: #7A Ladder Shelf - material is also salvaged fir, planed on four sides. These shelves are held together with splines of bamboo (salvaged flooring pieces). Not nails or screws used.

Photo: #5 Ladder Shelf - Laberge douglas fir from various boards with shelves left natural on both sides. Inside of verticals are planned smooth
Photo: #5 Ladder Shelf - sides too narrow for blind-mounting slots , so this piece has angled holes to receive finishing nails, still a blind mounting system

Photo: #4 Ladder Shelf - A mix of old Laberge woods - mounting with two flush screws below the top and bottom shelves. Shelf boards are natural on both sides, inside of verticals planned smooth.
Photo: #8 Bracket Shelf - this one is a bit of an oddity! I could not pass up the chance to use these nice end bits. Main board is douglas fir.

Photo: a little one without any finish - none needed!
Photo: Weathered and fresh faces all from Laberge salvaged fir.  Mirrors are also salvaged so have a few blemishes and minor scratches.  Wood is sanded lightly and coated so it can be wiped clean.
