This was the first project I ever built, in the summer. It gave me the woodworking bug. The project was a loft bed for my daughter. I saw a pic of one someone had built and designed the bed from that pic. The first pic is the intitial completed bed. The second two are the desk and top shelf I added a few days later.

Very nice. I like the built-in bookcase.

It doesn’t take a lot to get you hooked on this hobby, does it?

The best part is that you can take all that you have learned on the first project and carry it forward to the second and things just keep compounding with each new project, the lessons never stop. Hope to see many more pics as time goes on.
