Cut Pieces of Log Siding for Shelves
To create the wall shelves, use the chop saw to cut 4' long sections of log siding. Cut two 4' standards from 2 x 4 stock. Finally, cut 1" dowel rods to 7" lengths.
Place 2 x 4 standards on the wall 2 feet apart. Secure to the wall with 3" wood screws. With one screw in, check for plumb, then attach at every high point on the rounded log siding.
Use a 1" Forstner drill bit to drill four holes on each standard. Each hole must be 3/4" deep to hold the rods. Next, apply wood glue in the holes and the end of the rods and insert into the holes. Tap into place with a hammer as needed.
