Picture of DIY Cane Media Center With Minimal Tools

This week I am taking over! I have been wanting to build something by myself for so long and what better way to do that by making something a, we need and b, with something I am obsessed with, cane! Cane gives that beachy, coastal look, but also I can totally see a boho vibe in there. That’s exactly what I want. It’s perfect.

If you want to check out the way we plan and design our projects, you can watch the video here! We use a program called SketchUp, you might have heard of it. We went through the whole process of talking things out first, adding in materials, textures, measurements and a lot of tips and tricks along that way!

Alright let’s get into this project.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Since this is my first major project, I wanted to take this from the beginning and use a circular saw. I know how to use a table saw and miter saw, but I completely skipped the whole learning to use a circ saw part. Taking things back a bit. Let me tell ya, if you want to challenge yourself or master your skills, use a circ saw for an entire project. It’ll get ya.

Here's a list to all the materials and tools I used!

I like that a lot. Just a tip, put your hair all the way up when using power tools. I've seen way too many pictures and videos, don't delaminate yourself.
