The first woodworking project I ever took on was building a set of my own industrial hardware shelves for my apartment. A website called Restoration Hardware sold very similar shelves for $300. That’s right. $300!
I did my homework and realized I could build a very similar set for around $100.
They came out great! I was stoked – and forever hooked on woodworking/DIY. My girlfriend’s family really liked them as well, so I went ahead and build them a set last Christmas – my second undertaking of the project, so I knew all of the steps
This was a VERY simple build. But I wanted to challenge myself to document in in a cool way. Thus, I spent a lot of time figuring out the best way to do stop motion – the photography, the movements, the lighting, the sound design, and LOVE how it all came together. Yes – there is much progress to be made, but I loved how much I learned in the process beyond woodworking/building in this, as it has made me a better filmmaker as well.
Here is the vid – hope you enjoy the stop motion parts!
Note that, besides the two pictures, final shelves in the video and the photos of the shelves hung u, are all the ones I build. I don’t have any of them hung in my family’s house, but I will get some soon.
