You'll be on cloud nine once you've finished!
This shelf isn't too difficult to do if you have used a jigsaw before! it's always handy to have an extra pair of hands to help you hold the wood while you are cutting out the shapes or clamp it down

  • How to make a wall shelf. Wooden Cloud Shelf - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut out a length of wood for the main part of your shelf (mine was 40cm long). You will also need 2 cloud shapes - one large cloud which is slightly bigger than the length of your shelf and one thats about half the length of your shelf.

    Then cut the large cloud so that the bottom is the same length as the shelf but keep those end parts as you will need them later.

    Sand your piece down and then you will be ready to assemble your shelf.
