In the 1989 edition of the Willis Henry Shaker auction of ephemera, woodenware and furniture, this Canterbury, N.H., shelf  immediately caught my eye. I’ve incorporated a few size and construction variations from the antique in my version, but this design is true to the spirit of the original.

You’ll find a use for those scraps from earlier projects if you decide to paint this piece. Mixed woods are often found in antique furniture. Don’t be afraid to try it (if you don’t have enough scraps, head to the home center).

Building the drawer for this shelf is a new technique for the “I Can Do That” column. Don’t freak on me! It appears more complex than it is and your list of “got-to-do” projects will grow once this skill is in your arsenal.
