I spent a lot of time (truth be told) looking for plans, or at least design ideas. There are a few of these bins on this site, which are all really good. I suppose one could say that I encorporated a lot into my final plan. Final plan…hmmm. As I haven’t actually finished the project yet, I guess I don’t know what the final is truly. It really evolves as I go.
I have yet to build anything from plans. Which, off topic, mimics my life…I just do, I don’t plan. But this time, I really had no idea where to even start, as I had never seen one. As I said, LJ’s have quite a few of them, and of varying designs, sizes, capabilities, etc. Then I went to Sketchup Warehouse where there are quite a few less. I settled on a plan that I think either originated here, or was atleast used by a fellow LJ. Below is the link to it, and a screen shot.
I plan on redesigning the top to resemble more of a traditional bread box. I’ll cut the sides down by about 45° and move the door onto the angled area. I estimate that will give an opening of about 6” deep by the 18” width. The over all depth is 12” and the height will end up being about 36”.
Can’t wait to get back home tonight to continue the project journey.
