This is an add-on to project, the hobby desk.

My friend needed a lot of storage for his painting desk, so I told him I would make some little shelves. Not brain surgery, but of course I had to try and add a little something to it. Made a small profile on each shelf and shelf and made most of them adjustable as well. That added a lot more work than I anticipated! I much prefer working smaller parts like this with the machinery I have, but man, doing something with this many parts was tedious. But, he couldn’t be happier, so I am glad to have done it. The hardest part was planning the size and how to attach it without having access to the desk itself. I had my plans for it, but of course the plans did not perfectly match the finished desk. It took a little on-site adjusting, but it turned out very well!

Very nice. That looks like a model builder’s bench, though I’ve never seen a modeler’s space that was that tidy.

Very nice work for a ‘functional’ item.
