Hi guys, I have a project in front of me and right now I am just searching for ideas.
First pics of the work space
Second, my thoughts. I would like to do some sort of built in shelves, or bookcase/display case. The other option is to just hang shelves as I did with the laundry room
. But, I am kind of leaning towards something more decorative and pleasing to the eyes while still being functional. Some inspiration came from this post
My wife doesn't care what I do either way, she just wants shelves up. I may be getting in way over my head here, but I thought I would give it a shot. My woodworking experience is pretty minimal, pretty much all of it came from high school shop classes, which was ten years ago. I will also be limited in tools that I have that are relevant to this project. I have a 7 1/4 skill saw, 18V drill, a good ole hammer and hand saw, and a pair of saw horses.
The type of wood should of course match the color scheme of the room and the wood on the existing ledge, which I am still in the process of tracking down what exactly was used on the ledge.
So...open forum. Give me your best, give me your worst. Tell me I'm crazy and should just hire a carpenter, but hell, where's the fun in that. I'm in and up for the challenges that await.
