After many long months my first project is finally complete. It’s not perfect, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Plus, it feels very satisfying to complete my first project. 8 months ago I started with basically no woodworking knowledge, and after a lot work and effort I’ve learned enough to make this.
I think the next phase of my woodworking journey will be less about a project, and more focused on honing some basic skills; sharpening my tools, sawing in a straight line, etc.
Also, over the course of this project I took a lot of pictures which I plan to turn into a DIY guide of sorts. So, look out for that!
And for fun, one more picture of the arm rest coffee table, sitting in the sun right after being polished.
