Wood Shelves

My first wood project was this shelf with hooks.  I got my inspiration from The Idea Room.  I pretty much followed her instructions to the letter with only a few modifications.  The trickiest part was adding the corner molding, but her instructions were pretty thorough.  I made another one, larger but without the hooks.  The larger one was placed above two inexpensive bookcases that I screwed together and then added molding.  

These were my first projects using a compound miter saw.  I admit that I had to cut and re-cut to get the pieces to align properly and ended up having to buy additional molding.   In the end I believe my persistence paid off.
