Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Finished my bulkheadboard/book-rack last week. I paid $10 for the stick on LED strip lighting that's positioned under the top shelf and runs the length. It can be seen in the photos. The toggle switch cost me about $3. I always have cans of stain and varnish on board so I may have used about $10 worth of that. I had this Hemlock left over from another house project. Hemlock is kind of a budget wood but it has a nice grain and it's easy to work with so I would guess it might be worth around $80. I purchased the 3/4" maple plywood backing for this project and that cost me $45 but I have quite a bit left over that will be used for some galley shelves I'll build next.

The bottom compartments go about 6" deeper than can be seen in the photos.



The strip LED lights can be seen just under the top shelf.
