After lots of projects for the garage / shop, here’s my first to almost make it inside the house.
My wife and I wanted to turn a near useless space on our sun-porch into a reading nook.
LOTS of firsts for me on this project:
First dado joint.
First time staining a project.
First time finishing a project.
First time incorporating electrical into a project.
First time using edge banding on plywood.
First time using trim on a project.
(It’s almost like I’m still pretty new to all this)
Learned a bunch, and learned a lot about how much I don’t know, especially in getting finishes to come out the way i want them to. Wouldn’t have done it without the inspration of seeing other LJs work.
Special thanks to the commenters who helped me out when I was trying to figure out how / when to stain it on the forums.
Who knows, Maybe my next project will make it into the house proper.
