my first real foray into carpentry

 I needed a shelf to hold the audio receiver for the speaker system.  Unfortunately, I placed the hub in the most awkwardly shaped area of the house (back by the doors in the kitchen).  My friend Scott let me borrow his miter saw and behemoth of a circular saw so I could make a shelf out of the leftover flooring.  I started around 8 last night and finished a couple hours later.  I'd say it turned out really well, even without considering it was my first time wielding those types of saws.  Now onto making shelves for the pantry.
the workshop

the "finished" product.  still needs to be varnished.
