Well its getting mighty close to Christmas and I have one big project left . . . a jewelry armoire for DW.

I started by planing down a bunch of 15\16 Poplar to 3/4”. I’m not really sure if I have enough, but if I don’t I can run to Home Depot and pick up some D4S. I have to joint the boards before using, but that will be another day.

Last night I developed the plan for the project. This is how I plan most of my projects: grab a piece of paper and a pen or pencil, sit down at the kitchen table with a cup of tea and start sketching.

Once I get the below built . . . then I will continue with the plan. Or maybe not . . . I might just wing it.

My Mom and Dad always did their projects with this type of plan, and it worked for them for 40+ years. One day Jenn handed a similar plan and I thought “The wheel continues to turn”. I hope she keeps giving them to me for at least another 40 years! I wish you success with your project!

OK Great Box! And If you don’t hate me. You have inspired me for something I have been thinking about. A new roll around tool box for my galoot stuff. Planes and saws can be hung on the sides inside the doors gand the rest in the drawers with the top being used as a aux stand or other wise. Maybe with some dog holes just in case. Should be interesting
