cubby project

Just a comment that your video, although very informative, are not really addressed to the novice. I didn't understand half of what you were talking about. It would be nice if you explained what tools you were using, what molding you bought and where you buy molding, etc. I've never built anything so even if inspired, I still couldn't build by your video because I don't have the basics.

Stain on top of cubby shelf

Ana -

First, you are very talented and beautiful on top of that. Your hubby is a lucky guy. What stain did you use for the top? It looks like it is a dark brown against the white paint and I love that look. I am going to make this as I just purchased a Kreg pocket hole jig.

Adjustable?

Hi, Ana.

I have been looking at your furniture and trying to build up the gumption to actually make something for myself, so, of course, I had to watch the video to see how complicated it seemed. You really did a great job making it look easy, and I think I even understand it pretty well conceptually. Now I just have to see if my hands can do what my brain seems to grasp. The question I have is this: after you create all those great holes for the adjustable shelves, how do you actually put in a shelf? Forgive me if it seems like a ridiculous question; as I said, I am new at this.

Great Video!

Hi Ana,

Thanks for posting this video and the whole site. I feel empowered to tackle some building projects of my own.

Love it!

I just found you this morning and three cups of coffee later I find myself STILL sitting on the couch stalking your site like a FBI detective! You are AWESOME! I just love everything! LOL... I can't wait to start my first project! I have never built any furniture before, but I'm confident with your help I will be the next BOB VILA! hehe... Thanks so much
