A friend of mine wanted a way to control/store all this electronic remotes he has strewn over his end table. He offered a couple slabs of rough cut walnut if I would make him this caddie.
After trimming off the sapwood and wood rot areas I didn’t have the width I needed for the back. I improvised and inserted a couple strips of cotton wood I had leftover from a previous project. I think I adds a nice contrast for the eye to capture.
Sorry for the sideways pictures, not sure why. I attempted to turn them in photoshop but they still upload sideways.

I think your “improvisation” worked perfectly. The cotton wood adds some eye candy.

That walnut is a wonderful color, I’ve also had issues with rough walnut, using several planks to get enough clear pieces for a project.

Nice job!

That’s a really great idea and a great design.

Nice work! I think I need 1 of those.

I use Windows 10. I crop and rotate photos using the Photos App. They always post the way I see them.

This is a very creative piece and nicely done. I think that there is a definite need for these caddies. I my home we are all guilty about not keeping our controls handy and organized.
