Hi friends! I’m back from an incredible weekend in Atlanta. We were there for Workbench Conference and I was able to see all of my maker friends and meet new ones! Shara from Woodshop Diaries is one of the contributors here and we were able to reconnect and spend some time together at the conference. She’s the sweetest. She’s also one badass builder. Check out her new DIY Stacked Console Shelf – she built this beauty out of walnut and white oak for less than $100! I drew up the plans for her, so you can download those below, but be sure to check out her detailed tutorial on how she built it. She also filmed a YouTube video, so together with the plans, tutorial, and video, you should be covered on all sides when you go to build this DIY stacked console.
Build A DIY Stacked Console For Less Than $100
The design is very simple, yet smart. This is the perfect beginner project if you’re just getting into building things. Even though Shara used fine hardwoods, she was able to keep costs under $100 by milling her own boards. She bought the lumber rough sawn and used her table saw and planer to mill the boards to its finished dimensions. If you’d like to build it out of pine or spruce, your costs should be even lower! And if you don’t have a table saw, planer, or jointer, don’t worry – I wrote the plans so that you can use off-the-shelf lumber from the home improvement store.
Let’s take a closer look at that gorgeous wood grain – walnut is my favorite. All the heart eyes for this DIY stacked console.
