First, sorry about the horrible picture, im a better woodworker than photographer!! This was my first bookshelf and project using dimentional lumber, I have been working with rustic stock for years and was looking for something new to try…I bought this cherry from a guy doing portable lumber mill demonstrations at the local county fair. He didn’t want to load all of the lumber on his truck to take it home, so he sold me enough to do this project for .60 cents a bf, it came out to be like $14 total, how could I pass that up!! I definaltly made some mistakes building this like not planning the wood before joining the wood (I though it would be easier and quicker to do it as a 12” board instead of 2 6” boards), I didn’t joint them right so they cupped a little bit (not enough to ruin the project but enough to make you mad). I know there was more but i can’t remember what they were, but, I learned what NOT to do and for the price of that wood I was happy to teach myself and not lose my shirt on the project…
I know it’s a rookie piece, please be kind, I only just started learning how to work with dimentional lumber.Thanks for looking!
