He couldn’t see throwing it in a dumpster, so he brought it to his “Dumpster Dad”. I couldn’t put down a fancy floor without doing something to the rest of the shop. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I laid some out to see what it would look like. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

This project is about sole authorship of a long wanted project. My daughter (whom we are very proud of) -top-of the class, works full time and is a wonderfull person, will be moving out next year some time and one of the most useful pieces of furniture my wife and I got when were first married (thirty years ago) was a large flat topped hope chest that was used for a table, TV Stand, storage, base for a chest of drawers.

I’m making my first box (either a jewelry box or a nice tea box for the kitchen) and got to work on the sides and bottom last night. When I got everything cut out, and dry fit it all together, it fit perfectly! For someone who has struggled with making things square and getting mitered joint to line up even reasonably, I was literally jumping for joy! Hopefully another couple of night of work and I’ll be done. -Mike
