I started out making some shelves above the preparation area. They did not turn out the way I wanted them. The wood I used was not nearly wide enough, and the spacing of the shelves is all wrong. The shelves should be easy to replace after the rest of the mizuya is done. However, I think I will redo them as soon as possible. I need to find someone that can give me the proper measurements for a mizuya shelf. I want to get the carpentry done with so I can start using my new room. Even if it is several weeks until the tatami are due to arrive, I think I would enjoy to have Tea in my room using my two old mats.
