Have always wanted to do woodworking, so have finally took the plunge. I have just insulated and boarded out my 8×10 shed, now comes the fun part. Decided my first project would be shelves, just got my Kreg jig so this was the first time I used it. I have never built anything before, so spent ages watching videos and making sketches. Didn’t turn out too bad. Next I`m going to tackle a work bench, this could get messy.

Looks good Kessie!
I may have to borrow your design for some shelving in my unfinished basement.

Too late, you’re hooked on woodworking now. What a great start. I’ll be watching for what’s to come.

Thanks everyone for the words of encouragement, woodworking projects on hold for a few days, tiling the floor in the hallway, and new skirting boards!
