I tried using cutlist for sketchup and it didn’t make great choices so I flattened out the sheet goods and made sure they fit onto a sheet of plywood precut to 2ft x 4ft. There is enough material to make two nightstands. Material identification: Material Sizes:
I did some changes to try and get most of the pieces for two nightstands from one sheet of Oak plywood. I have a subcompact car so I had the guy at Lowes Depot cut the wood into four pieces (2 ft x 4 ft each) with the grain running the 4 ft direction. Here’s a link to the Sketchup file . To get the material to mostly fit, I eliminated the two lower shelves. Here’s a link to the picture .
I have a CPAP machine for OSA and my nightstand doesn’t have enough room for the machine and a clock. The CPAP has to be lower than the top of the mattress for safety reasons. I also got one of those memory foam mattress pads and now my nightstand is way too low. My current nightstand has two drawers which I like. So what I want is:- Nightstand as tall as the bed- Shelf for CPAP machine- Hole in side of stand for CPAP hose- Two drawers- Back behind drawers,but no back behind CPAP (ma...
I have been asking questions and seeking information about Consignment store opportunities both in my BLOG and through other sources. As I described I ran across a Consignment store opportunity that seems like the perfect starting point. The basic details are. 1. You lease store shelf/floor, wall space by the foot. A three foot shelf will run me about $20 per month.2. I set the selling price of all items I have in the store. I also place price tags on all items per store instructions.3. Th...
I have been scrolling for some time and have sold by word of mouth and at a few Arts & Craft shows. All with a fair amount of success. Now I have found an opportunity to be involved in a Consignment Store to sell my product. However, my question is, are these worth the effort. The arrangement for this consignment store is the rent/least space by the shelf. You pay $20 per month for a shelf that is three foot wide and about 18 inches deep. All of the basic fixture items are provided lik...
As any or you know who have looked at my postings for the past month or so I attended my first craft show last Saturday. This was a local event at a mission location of my Church. Seemed to be a safe place to start and it helped a cause the I well support. Overall I think I did fairly well. On of the first rules of craft shows is to recover the amount of your booth space. I did that in the first hour. Secondly is to sell some product and I well did that. Thirdly is to gauge the quality of ...
Finally finished this project. Turned out pretty good in spite of the table saw at work being way out of whack.
My marquetry work, “Seminal peace”, has been selected to be included in ”The Peace Project 2011”, an exhibit and fund-raising event. All net proceeds from sales of The Peace Project artwork and related products will be used in Sierra Leone to provide healthcare – providing 10,000 pairs of crutches and mobility devices to everyone in need throughout this entire post-conflict country. http://thepeaceproject.com/operation-rise.php Participating galleries include Gallery ...
The Dining chairs are coming along nicely now, with corner braces in place, and a mock up seat cushion.We found some nice genuine leather today, that is the same color as the mock up.
Here is the sketchup of the dining table and chairs I am currently building. The wood is QSWO with walnut pegs. The chairs are glued up, and ready for corner braces and pegs. The table should go quickly compared to the chairs. One chair has almost as many parts as the whole table. Cheers and happy woodworking!
