    The mounting hardware is from an old IKEA shelf!

    Do you have a cut list for your router jig? Like the design. Great work!

    I think that is way over the top. That shelf will be able to hold a tank on it.

    Good vid. About ready to do this in my kitchen from oaks that I cut down behind my house. Had not thought to use a jig, and my router to smooth the top surface. Thanks... way better than using a belt sander on these bandsaw blade cut slabs.

    Love the live edge shelf!! I have a huge7 foot live edge slab of pecan that I’m wondering if I can hang it this same way over a fireplace on a sheet rock wall...

    slab is quite heavy. i guess it's for decoration purpose only, fore anything else on it will cause damage to the wall behind it but albeit it's nice work - well done
