DEWALT-DW745Don’t have enough shelves to keep your food or spices? Build a petite one that’s so easy to make! With a table saw, you can turn one 3-feet long 1×12 hardwood board into small shelves to organize your snacks. Just cut off a 21-inch long board for the shelves, cut it in the middle to create two shelves, then cut 45-degree bevels on both long front edges using your table saw.

You should have two that are 1-3/8-inch wide and two that are 4 inches wide. Apply a finish, assemble with brass screws, and that’s it! You just made reliable shelves for your food!
