Numbered Cubbie Modified

Submitted by jlandr on Wed, 01/04/2012 - 09:36

This is my first woodworking project ever. I didn't like the numbers in Ana's plan so I changed it up a little for my taste. I also made this to sit on my desk and added felt to the bottom so that it wouldn't scratch the surface when my kids moved it around. It probably should have only taken me an hour but I was having issues with the brad nailer and not nailing straight.

Estimated Cost
$5 for the furring strips, I had the nails.

Pine furring strips, I tried to find ones with funky knots and textures to give it a more rustic feel.
