Once Again I Need Help - 13 replies

I have been working on a custom made humidor now I have a problem and don’t know how to solve it. The customer picked the design from a picture and then made modification/additions.

My brother and his wife asked me to build them a “remote caddy”. My first reaction- No Problem! But, again, I think I allowed my mouth to override my a$$. This is the design they wanted. It is about 4”W x 6”L x 4”H. I thought, I could create the layers- with holes- and them glue them together. Sanding perf...
