Well, actually I was the winner in this deal! Getting to help Sharon make her Casita truly "hers" was a priviledge... and she is such a delight to work with. Of course, I absolutely love Casita projects... Linda says that I like the "figuring it out" part better than I like the "building it" part... she may be right, and making Sharon's shelf so that it was sturdy when "set up" and pretty much disappear when not in use, had me scratching my head for a while. Anyway, Sharon caught me "between projects" so the little time I put into her little coffee shelf was welcome time back out in the shop.

Linda and I both wish Sharon many years of happy use of her new coffee shelf!

You go, girl!

If the person I pay it forward to is as surprised and appreciative as I am about my shelf, the world will truly be a little brighter.

I have gone out to the Casita several times today just to admire it.

Wow! Very nice! I was wanting a shelf for my coffee, so of course I pointed this out to long-suffering hubby who pointed to the power tools. Damn! Wish I wasn't so handy sometimes!
Not that I will do nearly so beautiful of a job!

Just a very nice thing!

Good day gmw photos! (please excure my crummy photo!)

If you decide to make a little shelf similar to Sharon's I'd like to point out that in order to provide a [more-or-less] vertical surface onto which the "shelf" is attached (thereby providing a level shelf) you have to deal with the fact that the window frame isn't vertical... I overcame this little detail by cutting a little "notch" in the uprights... this "notch" IS NOT 90-DEGREES, but I can't remember what it is. The "notch" also provides a fool-proof way to index the uprights to the window frame. The attached photo and "drawing" may illustrate what I'm trying to say.

Maybe not (!)

Grammy, it's the kind of latch that is on some windows so they can't be raised from the outside. It's similar to this one.
