So this is the first of the Christmas projects I’m doing this year. My wife’s sister is a teacher and needed something to put all her students papers. They sell things similar at Office Depot and such but the ones made of wood are like $150-$200. So I built her this for much less. It’s Birch Ply from the big box store that actually had some nice figure and a little light curl to it, and I edged it with some African Mahogany. I made it easy to assembly with Knock-Down Hardware so it would be easy to transport as well. You can see it disassembled in the second pic with all the hardware in a baby food jar.
Like I said, the materials are Brich Ply and African Mahogany with the shelves and back made of hardboard. It’s got 32 spaces and overall is about 40” L x 25” H x 12” D. I used some Danish Oil for the finish. My sister-in-law loved it and put it up in her class last Monday and got many comments. May even lead to a few more. Any questions and comments welcome. Thanks for looking.
