So this is my book shelf that I made for my 14 month old daughter. If you noticed, it matches my cutting board because I made the cutting board out of the scrap pieces left over from this project. This project to me is a “Pride And Joy” project meaning I built this project COMPLETELY unexperienced into that design so I designed this as a completely new challenge and second of all its a “Pride and Joy” project because its my first project built for my daughter and its a project you hope she’ll have decades down the road to pass on. Definately a fun project. Materials being Maple and Bloodwood with a gloss wipe on poly. I also burned a message on the back of it for her to read when she gets old enough to read… very sweet message to keep the father-daughter bond strong. It was a great building this for her knowing you’re putting your heart and soul into a project for your own child. Comments and tips are welcome. Thanks!
