My daughter asked me to make something to hold her notebooks so that they would be at hand when any inspiration hit that had to be written down. After mulling over a few ideas of shelves or a sort of commercially available ‘mail holder’ I came up with something I felt wouldn’t become a navigational hazard in our small house and would do the job.
I even got to use up some more of my free ‘drawer wood’. Plus I got to use my new TS blade, nice and sharp to edge join two of the boards to form the back of each unit. I don’t know what wood it is, but it smells different than pine when I cut it. After the edge joining, I ran the backs through my new toy, a planer. I hate to think of the sanding I would have had on my hands otherwise.
The sides are also from my street-found supply as is the front, which is plywood set in a dado. I finished the piece with spray lacquer.
