This is my first project that i designed. Everything I’ve done (except the corn hole boards that don’t count) have been off of plans or someone else’s idea. I designed this and built it from walnut and a couple glass shelves that have been sitting around for a couple years. It was def a learning process. I made quite a few rookie mistakes.
One picture shows where i miss cut the dado. I cut the bottom two perfect, with measurements off the bottom, but not all my boards were cut to length so i cut the last dado with measurements from the top. so the last dado on all five boards didn’t line up with each other. So i plugged them and cut a new dado. This is pretty simple but for me it was def nice to accomplish.
Another mistake i made was the bottom shelf. I made it from solid walnut. I put four inch panels together. It sat around for about a week and started to bow, so i put to stiffeners on the bottom. Well that sat around for a weekend and the wood decided to bow the other way. It wasn’t to bad so i just left it. you can’t really tell. I probably should have set some weights on top while it sat around. The top shelf didn’t bow at all. I think that is because it is 3/4” and the bottoms was 1/2” thick.
Any suggestions or critiques? I’m all ears!
