The inside of tower holder opens for access and ventilation. The tower is also on a pullout tray. The construction is oak and oak plywood.

The pullout tray for the tower is a GREAT idea. So much better than trying to shove your head in there every time you need to unplug something.

Excellent! My wife has been bugging me for years to build one of these. Great tower access panels. Do you happen to have any plans, sketchup or others, you could share?

I’m sorry I don’t have any plans or sketches. The way I usually work is I do a ruff drawing on my dry erase board and then break it down into a cut list. I have the list in a notebook but I don’t normally keep drawings because I can look at the cut sheet and picture the piece in my head. I also have a tendency to start changing things as I build them which makes it hard when a customer orders another one at a later date and they both have to match. It always seems like I come up with batter ideas on the second one.

I’m pretty much the same way with my plans. It is frustrating. I hadn’t thought of a marker board though. I just use scratch paper. Marker board would be nice. You do nice work.

I have a legal pad from 20 years ago that I used before I got the board. I think I’m going to start taking pictures of my board before I write the cut list on it and save it in the computer. I also think I am going to start saving the cut list, drawings and pictures in one folder on the computer. I have also started using sketch up to get a 3d rendition for the customer. I recently got a kitchen job because I could show her what it would look like and another builder couldn’t.
