This is one of my first projects. It is full of mistakes, gaps and poor joinery. I love it and am very proud of it. I made it with the crappiest amateur tools. If I were to remake it I could do a better job. But I have no intention of remaking the bookcase.

Looks good in the picture, and it serves the purpose. I find that whenever I make something my eye forever goes to the shortcomings, but other people don’t see them.

Even if you don’t think it looks good I imagine that you still learned a lot. The next piece will be better.
