« Part 1: Welcome and Thank You Part 2 of Shop Class series Part 3: Tools of the Trade »

I am currently starting out the school year and another great year in my high school shop class, but I have one problem. I don’t know what I want to build. I posted a bench that I have in mind. I also want to build a jewelery box for my mother. Those projects are great ones, but I need some more ideas. You think you cna help me out?

Sorry I did not offer more on the last post, I am in the middle of a couple things in the office here.

Here is a link to one in my projects: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/8035

They can be made 4’ or 5’ and in a 3 or 4 drawer configuration.

Let me dig out the file and get it posted for downloading.

In cherry you can expect to spend $250-$300. I have been selling these for $1100 to $1200 for my last ones. The last one went in a silent auction for $1550 at a fundraising event.
