My sister “commissioned” this project for the minister at her church.
Her email started out ”...you don’t have to do this if you don’t want to, but…”, so as you can guess…
Made from 3/4” birch plywood and walnut. It stands about 42” at the rear. The top is 20” x 30”. The two shelves are adjustable. The compound angles of the sides meeting the top were a real pain to calculate. I ended up making a scale model and practicing until I got them to fit.
I cannot believe how thin the veneer layer is on plywood today. I used my sharpest, thinnest, highest tooth count blade and put tape on every cut to eliminate chipping- but some still showed up. The up side was that I didn’t have to put a finish on it. The basement shop is too cold and the minister wanted it before spring so he said he would do it.
Thanks for looking!
