My first consignment project. Made from cabinet grade 3/4 ply with Pironite coating, similar to Formica. It originally had a single piece hinged lid but they felt that it was too heavy to lift so I modified to the dual hinged lid. This project required a lot of fore thought as I had to have the coating on it but not block my ability to screw it together. It took 6 sheets of 3/4 60×60 ply and a single sheet of 1/2 60×60 ply and three white 4×8 sheets and 2 red 4×8 sheets of the Pironite. There are 270 degree hinges on the back corner so that the lids can be swung back out of the way to access down through the top of the cabinet. This box houses electronic equipment such as printers and other computer hardware. They ultimately want two of them and I am hoping that the next one is a smoother process now that I have the basic process down. I had originally thought that perhaps I would like to do woodworking for a living but now am having second thoughts. It seems to take some of the fun out of it when you have deadlines and customer requirements, proposals, estimates and multiples of the same item.
