Toaster Oven Shelf

We were getting tired of having to haul out the toaster oven each time we wanted to use it, so I built this shelf in the dinette area.  It's easily removeable if we have company for dinner.

This overall picture shows how little space the shelf occupies. Three people can easily use the dinette; if there's a fourth, the shelf and toaster are quickly and easily removed. I have found that Minwax Golden Pecan stain is a very close match to the LD interior wood surfaces.

I put a small cleat along the edge of the table support board to keep the shelf from slidng forward on the table. I glued a small piece of rubber padding to the bottom of the board.
