My maiden wood project

Wooden items have always been close to my heart but everything wooden in my house was shop made.
Few months back I had tried my hand on pasting laminates on 16mm plywood to create background boards for my brass naval clocks and a prayer altar made of similar board with glass shelves. These things came out very nice and gave me confidence for more.
Because of zero experience on actual woodworking, I took my time to read tip and techniques given here on LJ and some similar woodworking sites.
Once confident and with a project on my mind, I embarked on my first ever wood project made out of pallet wooden boards. I have no idea which wood I have used and believe it or not, actually bought TOOLS as I went along with my project.

The last picture is of few TOOLS that I ended up buying for this project.

An “ANANT” planer.
“G” clamps (I always had them)
10 mm drill machine
Standard hammers
Meter scale
and few assorted items.

I directly used 3 coats of clear synthetic varnish over the wood as I could not find/explore more options for getting the professional polished look.

I intend to use it as open SHOE RACK.

Please do visit me on www.ariesonu.tumblr.com for more pictures of my maiden project.

Thanks,
Sonu

Welcome to LJ’s.

Nice project. Turned out really good.
