I’m starting to prepare for my first “solo” project. I did some woodworking in junior high, and last spring I took a woodworking class where we made a mantle clock. I don’t remember much from the junior high class, and in my mantle clock class a lot of the tool setup was taken care of. I expect this project will be quite the learning experience.
The first item in things I haven’t had to do before is find a plan. I’m looking to build something my wife can keep her jewelry in. The choices are limited by the fact that she wants one where she can hang her necklaces instead of keeping them in a drawer.
After some searching around (and checking on veto’s from my wife) I’m leaning towards this one from Rockler:
but I’m curious if anyone has any comments on it or any other plans.
I probably won’t be able to start really working on this project until April. That’s when the next open woodshop session at the community center opens up. That will give me plenty of time to find and get acquainted with the plans before I start making sawdust.
