This is my first "big" project after doing smaller ones like stools and shelves. My wife was about to buy something in more the 1000$. I asked her to give me a chance to make something by myself. The idea was to add nice 50's style console to our home lobby. Since I never learned woodworking, I needed to ramp-up my knowledge, which I did mainly through YouTube videos.
My main challenges where with non-straight legs with the curved bridge, and aligning the doors with small, yet strong and unseen hinges. Since it is just a hobby, it took me several weeks of working after the kids went to beds, but my wife dropped her idea of buying console. And then she allowed me to submit hiking trip with my to boys in the Rocky Mountains. She said I deserve it...
