I was experiencing some “stress” on my main project (read: I was unable to light it on fire without witnesses) so I took a side trip down the PopWood “I can do that” street.
What can I say? It’s occasionally pretty nice to do a project start to finish in a couple hours—and to do it with painting in mind. Reminds you that pocket screws ain’t evil. Puts a spring in your step. Lightens your mood. Makes you choose the salad over the cheeseburger. Gets you thinking that you might take up marathoning—or meditation.
The toolrack is built from home depot “pop’lar” wood. I did all relative dimensioning on this and drew the curves by eye. Had the hooks in stock. All hand planed. Gonna paint it brick red so that crazy-white board at the bottom don’t show. I will probably double up on the dowels so I can hang my mallets.
A nice, quick, refreshing project and a nice addition to the shop. After making it I am considering a second one—in walnut and with a mirror—for the front hall.
