Did this project for a client. Pretty straight forward and simple design. Fun build, although I ran into some trouble with shelves. I ripped some 2x6's in half long ways to make the shelves and butt them together to create a planned look. Unfortunately, after I ripped them, it caused the wood to warp and bow really bad, making aesthetically terrible looking shelves. So I took them off, bought 3/4" stock, and created new shelves. Much better! Definitely need to experiment more with ripping wood in half! Overall it was a great build and the client absolutely loved it! Along with everyone that came by my work area while I was building it! :)
