Lots of the things I make are recycled or upcycle. I made this shelf 15+ years ago. We lived in a 1959 home and remodeled the kitchen. We took the heavy mahogany wood from the kitchen cabinets and made all kinds of projects. Some of it became a simple ledge shelf. What is remarkable is that as much as we rotate decor, this shelf has survived 6 or 7 moves to different homes because it is so simple and versatile. My wife took some knobs and pulls from an old chest of drawers to add hooks.
