Got the design from a Woodsmith book called “Weekend Woodworking” and built these at my wife’s request. Now she’ll be the only one in her office, etc.

My only comment on this is that I don’t know how many hours there are in a weekend at the Woodsmith offices, but apparently there are a lot more hours than there are in my shop!

Cherry and maple.

Thank you for sharing

These look great, I understand what you mean on weekend hours. I”m just finishing a Jewelry box for Wood Magazine and they state build it in a weekend. I was wondring how long thier weekends are.

These will make you wife the talk of the office. I have a feeling you will be making more.

Weekend starts 4am Friday – 7am Monday tea breaks are optional.

Very nice In/Out trays, I hope my dearest does not see them or
she will also want to be the only one in the office.

They probably did it over a long holiday weekend. Anyways…. the end result makes the time well spent.

Love the touch of the spline joints. Great project. Question – I think the trays would slide out at close together as they are. Very nice and compact.

Very nice, I like how the 2 different types of wood highlight each other. What were the woods? Cherry and Maple?
