So, the wife (YieYia) showed me a picture from one of her Pintrest® excursions and asked if I could/would come up with a version to fit all her stamp pads, blending pencils, etc. into a predetermined space in her “studio” (used to be called a craft room)? How could I say no?
Armed with measurements of the items, available space, and Sketchup®, I came up with this. The 3/4” and 2.5 mm plywood were remnant materials that I had lying around, but I had to buy some 6/4 knotty alder ($2/BF) which I glued up and milled down to 2 1/2” x 5” for the vertical dividers. I opted for the 2.5 mm primo Chinese plywood because it fit the kerf width of my thin kerf saw blades perfectly and where else was I going to be using this stuff that I had acquired for reasons I can’t quite recall? The cabinet depth of 5” was determined to support the majority of the 7” long blending pencils and so that the 3”x3” stamp pads would not slide to the back of the cabinet (out of reach), I dadoed in false backs at a 3” depth between dividers.
The unit stands 18” tall, ~32” wide, and 5” deep. Joinery isn’t fancy, just glued & screwed butt joints with dadoed shelf supports. The finish is rattle can semi gloss white (by request).
Thanks for looking in. Think I will take shelter in the house till the weather cools a bit (forecasted 106-108 for the rest of the week).
