no previous part Part 1 of Making a valet series Part 2: Shaping and fitting the base »

So I am out walking the mall and I like to go in the furniture stores and check out the different styles. I came across a valet. I had never seen one before but the purpose was cool and the piece seems real easy. If you have never seen one they are all over google images.

As I do this build I thought I would doment it in a series since I plan on using nothing but hand tools- thanks for looking
