Oak Cycling Shelf

A custom oak shelf unit designed to hold my cycling accessories. It features a shelf for my helmet and another shelf for miscellaneous items such as water bottles, sun screen, lip balm, and common tools. Additional posts provide places to hang sunglasses, headphones, hats, and other light objects.

It is made from a single 1" x 6" oak board hand cut and carefully arranged double wide to try and hide changes in the grain. Joining pegs cut from wooden dowels are set between the boards to provide support across the piece and for the load bearing shelves. The individual pieces were sanded, drilled, glued, clamped, and stained all before finally being hung on the wall over my pride and joy Cannondale CAAD10. I'm reminded of my efforts every day I set out on a ride, and I'm proud to share that here with you today.
