This is my absolute first furniture project, using a minimum of tools, a minimum of skill, and a bit of trial and error.
I took the piece of wood to a buddy to get them planed down in size and uniform thickness. Unfortunately, this pallet wood is bowed, cupped, or whatever, and so nothing really fits together that well. I had to tweak my dado cuts with my circular saw as you can see in the one picture, and shim up the dados in other areas.
The actual shelves were attached using some 1/2 board run perpendicular to the shelves, tacked and glued in place.
I wasn’t happy with my stain, and I learned a valuable lesson with stain, you can’t stain with divets/pock marks in the wood otherwise it clumps up there. Overall, I learned a lot, and have more tools and more skill to put to use to my next project coming soon.
Also, any way to make sure lumberjocks doesnt rotate the images?
