Running out of room

As my collection grows, so does my need for more space. I had been talking to my good buddy, Matt for quite some time about building a multi-tiered table to hold my trees and trainers but until I walked past the stair risers in Lowe's, had no clue how I would proceed. I grabbed a couple and pieced together a table in my head while grabbing plans. No plans. No sketches. No former knowledge on carpentry. Just wanted to "build a thing" so it happened. Matt came by last night and helped me finish this beauty. It's 4 feet wide and holds plenty of weight. I think if I had to do it again I would make it 6-8 feet and add a third riser for support.

Over all I'm very happy with how it turned out and that there were literally no hiccups when building. Nice to fly by the seat of your pants and succeed sometimes, is it not?
