Well, here it is, the long awaited first project. A simple panty/storage area. I had problems with not having enough wood, then I got the wrong size screws, and I haven’t told yall about when I started assembly.
Wellllllll…...I finnaly got the wood I needed (or so I thought), the screws I needed, and began assembly. I put together the shelfs, and attached them to the legs. WELL, a moment of clarity hit me and I figured that I had better see if I can get this monster into the hole before I get to far into it and low and behold, it didn’t fit. SOOOOOOO, now I had to disassemble the thing and then put it into the hole and assemble it there. I went to find the level so I could make sure it was level, and guess what, it was nowhere to be found. So I eye-balled it and got it done. All three shelfs frames installed and the wife (pink handcuff girl) got home from work and reminded of where I left it, in our bedroom while hanging pictures….my bad. I went and checked the level of the shelf and it was dead on from my eye-balling…..OH I’M GOOD…yea right, luck is more like it.
A few days later, I got the plywood out of the shed and started to cut to fit when I realized that I only had enough plywood for 2 full shelfs…..hmmmmmm. I laid the lower shelf in and realized that I had measured for 3/4in plywood and I had 1/2in….so now I have an uneven base…grrrrr. My wife thinks its great but I am disappointed, I made way to many mistakes….lack of planning, not checking tools, not checking materials…..oh well.
