This is what I consider my first real “project”. I researched and designed and made this today as I am in need of extra storage and to get items up on the wall. Its not very fancy but was made more for function. It is made of 3/4 inch plywood and hung on the wall with a French cleat. Used pocket screws and glue for the joints. I know its not fancy but is practice for my wife’s jewelry armoire I plan to do soon.

Nice first design piece. As you use this I am sure you will see where you wish to improve it. Consider putting paint or some finish on it. You will find raw wood acts like camo at times. Just a suggestion.

Thank you, appreciate the suggestion. I had thought about using some sort of finish on it but didn’t have anything handy and was too excited to get it hanging on the wall at the time I finished it. I more than likely will sometime soon. And sorry for the sideways photos, they do not show on my phone or my computer that way and cannot figure out why it posts that way.

I have done same thing in the past. Always land up having to go back and fix it. LOL Think of finishing a project for the shop as practice. Experiment some, see what you like and do not like. One thing to keep in mind is that things above the bench need to be a lighter color, like white to help with overall lighting. Again something I have to fix on a few cabinets I have but it does seem to make a difference.
Above all, enjoy it!!! Now make something else. LOL
