Mary and I chose a very small home on a large lot so there’d be plenty of room for the shop. Storage in the house was lacking, so I built this cabinet/bookshelf to maximize the wall space.
Oak plywood, oak faceframes and laminate countertop. Plenty of drawers and room for the old stereo system and HP printer.
When I was buying the oak from the local hardwoods dealer, he told me about a new shipment of burl he just got in. Suggested I might be able to find a nice piece to cut-up for bookends. I found a nice piece, but couldn’t bring myself to cutting it up. So I simply put a flat edge on it, added a support in the back and gave it a nice finish.
