Hi Folks – I’ve been inspired to post more of my projects from hanging out with my fellow LJs. As I’ve read posts and visited many “home” sites, I’ve seen lots of projects (not to mention the “projects” link). So here is another of my projects. I built (or installed) my workshop in 2002. It had been my dream and when we re-mortgaged our home to send our sons to college, we found an extra small nest. My wonderful wife (now for 36 years) acknowledged my hard work and told me to fulfill my dream. The only thing she asked was a vegetable bin. I surfed the web and shopped for ideas and came up with this design. It’s my own and was very well accepted. My wife was so pleased, she told folks about it and all this led to my making one each year for our church Christmas fair 10 years in a row (it brought in a generous fund). I 1st build a frame of 2X2’s and place a wire mesh on the bottom and backs of each bin. I then surround this crude frame with 1X12 sides and a face depicted in the photo. The doors have a wide air circulating feature and look good. Along with the wire bottoms and back, the vegetables are kept dry even during our humid NH summers. The bin is made of pine and rustic, but attractive and very useful.
