My Wife is an avid cross stitcher and had her thread (floss) everywhere. So, I built her a storage cabinet. It has ten drawers with 18 individual compartments so she can seperate them by color and material. No, it hasn’t stop the floss from being put everywhere but I can now at least point to where it should be stored (of course only if she is out of the room).

Nicely done… and I could do the same for my wife’s tubes of watercolor paints…. but I haven’t developed the art of providing her with guidance and direction…

Yea, I wear the pants around my house too, until my wife gets home. That is a well made, great looking cabinet. Keep it up, BTKS

I agree with BTKS – that is a great looking, nicely made cabinet. And I suspect that practically everyone could find something to do with one of these – who doesn’t have lots of small doohickeys laying around. I know I could certainly use one. Hey, they’d be nice in the shop for storing small pieces of wood that we just don’t want to throw out ‘cause we know as soon as we do, we are going to need it!

I read the title and thought “by this guy has dental care issues”

Nice box. Would be a nice size to store flys between fishing seasons.

Awesome job on the cabinet. My wife is in to kniting and she wants me to make her a storage chest. Fantastic work.

Nice storage box. All those compartments must have been a ton of work.
