You can locate studs or use drywall anchors.Sure, you can buy a shelf similar to this one at a discount store, but you won't be able to choose the size or finish.We designed ours with a wider top to hold vases and other collectibles, but you can make yours bigger or smaller.

Plus, you can finish it to match your room.The shelf is versatile and goes together fast—it would make a great gift.We made our shelf from cherry, but you can also make it from oak or pine for about half the cost.

Tips for building the shelfYou'll need a miter saw and a table saw for this project.A finish nailer isn't necessary but is very helpful.If you don't have a finish nailer, drill pilot holes for the finish nails to avoid splitting the wood.

You can use scraps of less expensive lumber for the base (E) and cleats since these aren't visible.Glue the parts together.Because you can use fewer nails, you'll have fewer nail holes to fill.We finished this cherry shelf with a coat of American Walnut stain (test the color on a scrap) and three coats of spray satin lacquer.

Photo 5 shows how to mount the cleat that supports the shelf.Then you just drop the shelf over the cleat to hang it on the wall.Figure A: Shelf DetailsThe Cutting List gives finished lengths for the top, front, sides, cleats and bottom.

You can cut these to the exact width and length listed and nail them together.The lengths listed for the 3/4-in.x 1-in.bands and the 3/4-in.cove moldings are oversized.You'll mark these pieces in place for an exact fit (Photo 1).
