This is one of the first pieces of furniture I ever made – before I even had a table saw, and made all my rip cuts with a circular saw and edge guide. Just a little end table to fit perfectly into a corner of the nursery (my daughter was born 03/06/12). Like all my early projects, this was made with scrap wood, mostly from a big box cull bin – S4S pine and veneered plywood. Also my first attempt at installing a shelf with dados.
There are things I would have done differently knowing what I know now, but all in all I’m satisfied with this as an early piece of my own design. Plus, since I made it for $5 worth of scrap my kid can beat up on it all she wants without causing me any heartache.
