« Part 28: A day late.. But two new Pens Part 29 of 52 Weeks series Part 30: Blanks and time with my daughter »

Well another week with no pictures. However the reason for that is that I am currently in the middle of working on an actual project. We saw a wall organizer at Target that a friend would like to have. I did not though like the construction of it and the particle board that it was made out of. So, you guessed it… I have set out to make my own. I spent time this weekend cutting out all the pieces and running them through the router.

The one we saw had a very simple set of drawers on it. My plan is to use a laminated block of some of the leftover wood to make a bandsaw box that will be part of the piece. I am posting a bit early as I hope to be in the shop after my daughter goes down to work on that box.

This project is a great learning experience and I am hoping it turns out well. So far so good. I am actually making two of them so that we might use one here at home. Look for the project and possibly a mid-week blog to go up by the end of the week.

Enjoy the shop this week and for those of you in my neck of the woods Stay Cool, not looking forward to another high heat week.
