Work-Shelf Ledge

Martha Stewart Living, July 2002

A simple piece of trim ensures that you'll never have to worry about a screwdriver, a nail, or a bolt rolling off a shelf and damaging a project on the bench below. Cut a 2-inch-by-1/4-inch piece of wood to the length of your shelf. Attach the trim with finishing nails, one about every foot. Set the nails with a punch; then putty, sand, and paint.
