no previous part Part 1 of UNPOSTED PROJECTS -- NOW POSTED series Part 2: HUTCH & SHELVE COMBINE »

There are times in our everyday life that changes the plans. Sudden twist that halt the others and a new project comes. In my case, I have a lot of pending jobs or project…. spiral design, armoires, two j boxes, two side tables etc. Though most pending projects are not urgent neither bound with a contract, these becomes a big file of junks in the shop. JUST WAITING FOR THE TIME TO BE FINISHED.

BUT WHY? I will say ….

THE SUDDEN CHANGE OF ONE ROOM…. BEDROOM TO A TUTOR ROOM…
My wife started a new way of teaching grade school students. The school closed and she started tutoring her previous students in school. She requested to renovate our mother’s room to a tutorial room. AS YOU KNOW, NO ONE CAN REFUSE A REQUEST FROM WIFE… IT IS SAID THAT THE COMMANDER HAS ORDERED and all you need is to HALT and OBEY THE COMMAND NO MATTER what?

THIS HAS RESULTED TO SEVERAL PROJECTS DURING THE WEEKEND…..

I MADE two small table from available lumber that were recycled. 3/4 ply on top and red lauan (PHIL tanguile) legs and selected pine from palettes. Here it is….

THE DESKS AND THE PIANO BENCH

The top of the desks

Another bench just recently added: This was stained last Saturday and will be sprayed on this saturday.

That is not all yet….

THE TALLEST SHELVE I EVER SEEN….. 7 feet 3 inches high x 14 inches x 40 inches
Sorry no picture when it was under construction …. But just enjoy how it is used…. FULLY LOADED!!!!

The SHELVE

The joints were made really strong using mortise and tenon. I used routers (3 portables) so that I will not be changing blades and setting while doing all the joints and necessary routing. It was exciting… 6 shelves joined by motices and tenon…. making 48 mortices and tenons.. Some in 3/4 and rest were 1/2 inches. It took me 6 days (Saturdays and Sundays only making it 3 weeks. Here are some more pictures….

When this was installed just last Saturday…. My wife Agnes said…. Thank you honey…. and a cup of coffee.

TILL NEXT…

Hey some really nice work, I mean keeping the wife happy.LOL. The furniture ain’t too bad either. If she ain’t happy than neither are you. Hope you get back to the other project soon.
