First time builder

I was so nervous building this as my first DIY project. Pocket hole joinery is the best! Once I go the hang of the Kreg Jig, I was rolling. The kids even helped me by clamping and adjusting as we went along.

 

I wish I had run the top boards through a planer to even them out as it seems nearly impossible to join the boards evenly. Next project is a dining table! Wish me luck!
