The first picture is a photo rendering of the SketchUp drawing I made of this project. It’s a worktable I designed to remedy the problem of having no space for a proper workbench. You can see in the background that the table comes completely apart. The top is a torsion box so it stays flat but is very light. The other picture of it is an actual photograph of the build out. It works as intended, taking only about a minute to set up or take down.
The other thing (sorry if I’m violating the rules by showing 2 projects) is a 100 year old kitchen cabinet that was in horrible condition, although still in use. It had nine badly slobbered coats of heavy paint, many parts were worn out, cracked or so badly damaged that they had to be replaced with new ones. It took most of the summer to do the woodwork. The worktop was gone, replaced with boards nailed to the cabinet and covered with old style oil based linoleum. We replaced that with a beautiful piece of granite.
The wall shelf I had built years ago to go with it also needed to be replaced and, since I have a new CarveWright, I had to carve out a nice Rooster to go in the center of the back board. The rooster is SWBMT’s new theme, part of the French Country decor. On the two support brackets there are scollsawn silhouettes of the same rooster image.
