Three Peaks Mountain Shelf

I have seen lots of these mountain shelves on Pinterest and thought I would have a go at making one for myself.

I wanted to use reclaimed pallet wood for this project but I did not have any wide enough. So the first thing I did was to joint one edge of some boards and then put some glue on them. 

I spread the glue out then clamped all the boards together. These could be left over night to dry. 

The next day I ran the boards through the table saw to get them the same width and then through the planner to get them all the same thickness. 

I experimented with angles to get the peaks looking how I wanted. In the end I went for a 30’ angle and cut these on the mitre saw. 

I started joining the peaks together using wood glue and brad nails. 
I could attach the first mountain to the base and then add the second peak. 

The third peak got attacked and then I gave the shelf a sand down. 

I wanted my mountains to have snow caped peaks so I painted them with chalk paint. I applied lots of paint and allowed it to run down the mountains. 

I let it dry then gave it a coat of clear wax. I hung the shelf on the wall and filled it with some of life’s essentials. 

Thats it all done. Please watch my video for more information. If you enjoyed the video please subscribe to my YouTube channel for a new project every week.
