My masterpiece wooden shelf

Heh heh heh... been taking advantage of the cold weather to work indoors... on wood, that is.
We renovated our second floor after we bought our property some years ago and I could not let myself see the 'old' wood being hauled away as debris.
We had them stored in a corner.
And, tadaaaa.... four years down the road, this masterpiece...
As a 13 year-old boy, I took a class called 'Industrial Arts' where the instructor taught us how to make a wooden book stand.
That was just about the only lesson I had on woodwork.
As an adult, I had made a shoe-rack, which turned out to be too rickety...
This shelf is by far the biggest woodwork project I have ever undertaken.
It is quite sturdy, and large enough to store our stuff.
Am now in the process of making some boxes from the left-over wood.
Boxes to store produce like onions and potatoes.
