Hey guys, as a Harry Potter fan, I wanted a place to proudly display all of my Harry Potter swag. So I made this floating shelf based on the Deathly Hallows symbol from the Harry Potter series ( I built this using some scrap pieces in my shop, and used epoxy to join them together to make. It was a lucky accident that I realized epoxy was the perfect medium to customize which house I belonged to!

Step 1: Prepping Lumber for the "Cloak of Invisibility"

Since I was working with live edge offcuts, I picked out pieces that were all roughly the same length and cleaned the loose materials off of the pieces using a chisel and followed up by sanding the edges with 80 grit sand paper.

Next, I ran each piece through the jointer to get a flat face, and then through the planer to get all the pieces down to the same thickness. Lastly, I used my table saw to cut all the pieces down to the same length.

Great idea, and beautifully executed. Nice work!
