no previous part Part 1 of Projects in process. . . series Part 2: Copper air lines, small shop 101 »

In my small shop space is hard to come buy so I decided to build something to hold my bench plans. This design was in Finewoodworking number 209. My wall wouldn’t allow me the space to put the bottom shelf but it was easy enough to subtract it from the plans.

The only real issues I’ve had is dealing with the crappy low grade cabinet plywood I bought a few months back. I bought it before really understanding the differences in plywoods and although its better then big box stores grade its proven to have a few waves in it. I’m finding these are making it fit poorly with the projects I’ve used it on so far.

That said I’m learning as I go and enjoying things.

I’ve got it mostly done just need to figure out the best placement of the plans so I can cut the dados and glue in the dividers

Not a lot of time this weekend but did get a few hours in the shop to get this finished up. I still need oil the wood and add the straps but just hanging it on the wall makes me happy.

Finished it up this weekend and happy with the final look. It doesn’t fit all my plans but it will hold the ones I need most.
