Now that I knew I could build things that other people buy, and that I could do it for basically free, winding up with a much-improved, more durable product, the hook was firmly stuck in my mouth. I decided to get rid of the crappy wire shelves in our kitchen pantry and put in some real ones. As I was putting stuff back in our, now improved, pantry closet, I noticed my wife has a bunch of boxes of different flavored tea. I’ll bet yours does too. Ever notice how they don’t really stack very well and therefore take up a bunch of space?
I had been reading about other types of joinery and decided to practice some dadoes. And so the tea storage rack was born.
And when I realized how much space in my workbench all of the batteries were taking up, I further honed my dado skills with a battery rack a la Steve Ramsey.
Darkness came. The wife was happy. The next day . . .
