Feeling Proud

My end table is completely done now! Over the course of 7 months, it took me 67 hours, but someone with experience (and who’s not a perfectionist) could definitely build more quickly. I was finally able to pay for my materials, and those cost about $50. It was $85 for the course, and I also paid for another year at the club, which was about $50 too. Add to that a bit more for a couple of things like glue, and I’ve spent almost $200 for wood hobby club, but I think it was totally worth it!

The club is closed for the summer ’cause it gets too hot in there. Everyone will be out enjoying the good weather instead and I’ll be busy building the shell of the house. Come winter or next spring, hopefully I’ll be back in the club building my custom kitchen cabinets and storage solutions 🙂

Here it is, all sealed, cured, and filled with many tiny-house-related things:

My energy usage monitor, papers from wood hobby, my wood hobby membership card, and an empty photo album I plan to fill with pictures of the process of building the end table.

All my tiny house books and the little box that holds my purple wind chime.

I added foam to the corners of the door, so now it closes much more quietly.

I love it!
