I did this project as a Father's Day gift for my dad who is a photographer and has lots of pictures! I plan on making another one for my house because I like it so much. Mine took longer than it should have because I made a few mistakes, like not making sure the pocket holes were facing the right way before I screwed the main frame together. I also accidentally measured and drilled in the twine screws on the wrong side and had to fix that. So if i had done everything right the first time, this project would have only taken a few hours to complete. Fun and easy to do!
Inspired by Ana and driven by a desperate desire to nest, I made this table in my first-trimester. We live at this table. It's where we eat, play, and craft. On special occasions we stand on top of it, and sometimes we even eat under it. We love the way it looks in our mid-century ranch house with modern chairs. Thank you, Ana!
We wanted an outdoor bench for our front entrance way, this one is just what we were looking for! Thank you for the plans.
I couldn't believe how much twin beds cost in stores and couldn't find anything I liked for my son under $350. I have already made a few other things from Ana White, so I was excited to see this "knock-off!" I followed the plans exactly and didn't want his bed to be too high, so there is so box spring.
I have recently discovered how much fun it is to make things, so I couldn't wait to build my son his "big boy bed!" He loves it! He's happy so this momma's happy, too!
This was my husband and my first DIY project and we were thrilled at the outcome! It took us a day to build and then a couple days to stain and paint.
For our wedding we wanted to make seating for our guests. We ended up making 16 chairs total over several weekends. We also made the pergola.
Made an adirondack chair from ana's plan. I am from the UK, but i still made it the plan as much as I could without resorting to mm's
I made this entry table to go by our front door. It's a spin off from the "console table" posted by Anna. I read some of the comments from people who had problems with her plans as a result of different standards in lumber and decided to alter this some!
I cut the side braces short enough so when I included the measurements of the legs the actual table top extended approx. 3/4" further past the legs and apron of the table. I also went with one sheet of wood on the table top and finished it up with some trim around the edge of the table top.
I fell in love with a set of bookshelves from a big box store (ahem, T@#get) but was disheartened to find that they would not help me get the corner shelf ordered to Canada from their website.
With inspiration from Ana, I decided to design and build the whole thing myself. It cost 1/3 the price, and as my first wood project, I'd say it turned out pretty well.
I made my design to work best with the wood available local to me, and to fit specifically in our room. The biggest challenge wasn't wood-related at all, but was actually dealing with the electrical outlet that I needed to attached to the base of one shelf.

I used Ana's plans and only made one adjustment. I could not cut the 50 degree angles on my miter saw so I just borrowed the "V" design from one of her other plans. This table is really heavy and sturdy. A helper is necessary to flip the table top back and forth.
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
