Bookshelf Couch

So long as I was building a couch, I thought I ought to attach a bookshelf to it. It makes a very nice end table (to hold the book you're currently reading, of course). I figured I hadn't posted anything random in a while, and I might be ridiculously happy with my woodworking efforts. This project was inspired by two absolutely fantastic plans from Homemade Modern, here and here.

I love making things myself -- I love creating something custom that's "just right". I love making memories. I love drilling pocket holes and smelling the sawdust. But there's always this fear that at the end, it will all collapse into a pile of lumber. It's always a miraculous relief when that doesn't happen.
