I’ve only been woodworking for about a year and a half, but looking back, I’ve accomplished quite a bit! Rather than posting each of these simple little projects in their own page, I put them all together as one “kitchen upgrade” package. All were made out of red oak, and I did my damnedest to try to match the finish to the existing cabinets that were there when I moved in. I ended up using pore-filler to help keep the grain from jumping out too much.
The first I did was just ridiculously simple shelving. I used my kreg-jig to make pocket holes to anchor them into the wall and the neighboring cabinet.
The second was just a very simple wine-rack—a single board with slightly-angled holes. Apparently our enjoyment over the past few weeks led to a poorly stocked photo ;-)
Third was a small bucket to hold our spatulas and other too-big-for-a-drawer utensils.
Finally, my favorite, a cookbook shelf. I wanted to try tusk-tenon joinery, and they came out great. Way too complicated for what it needed to be, but I had fun anyway.
I’d love to hear what you have to say!
