It's not often that I play around with a pull saw. In fact, I pretty much NEVER branch out into the wood department when it comes to DIYs. But I recently broke free from my no wood/ saws policy and made this DIY Christmas tree shelf from scratch. Here's the story...
I was trolling the internet looking for a new mirror for our bathroom and stumbled on this circular shelf from Ferm Living, which is not a mirror at all - I totally fell down the rabbit hole. For some reason, the first thing that popped in my head when I saw it was 'Christmas tree'. The mind works in mysterious ways.
Anyway, I started thinking about how I would make something like this and realized it actually wouldn't be THAT difficult. Turns out, with some help from family (I would recommend an additional pair of hands for holding sides upright while glueing, etc), I was able to pull it off.
Check out the full tutorial, with step by step instructions, right here on Curbly.
I have to admit, I am feeling all kinds of official right now. Somebody point me towards their next wood project! I'll bring my tool belt (filled exclusively with bottles of wood glue) and a hand saw.
