I started woodworking in 2006. My first two projects were rudimentary shop equipment: a table with a couple drawers & a door attached to the top (aka my first bench), and a rolling cart/table for a router table. These were both way too ugly to ever make it out of the basement and into the main house.
This bookshelf was the first project I attempted that ended well. Meaning, in a piece that stayed together, did what it was supposed to do and looked good enough to move upstairs.
It was designed to fit a very particular space in one of the hall closets, to house a collection of philosophy textbooks from undergrad and grad school.
This was also a beta-test across two purposes: 1) to see if I could find adequate supplies to do a project at the local home store (I did). & 2) to assess the aesthetics of a design (in the round) for a planned built-in project for the study.
