Designed these bookshelves for my kids for a Saturday morning project. They had a blast painting and putting them together. Me scrubbing paint off the kitchen table..not so much fun. Made from 1/4” MDF and pine, cut out on the cnc router.

The paint on the table is definitely a “look back and laugh” moment. Good job on this. Great job involving the children.

These are amazing. I am always looking for ways to incorporate pirate anything into my woodworking. I hope your kids love them.

I designed the patterns with a little help from google images. Find something close and modify the heck out of it to make it work and cut out on the cnc router.
