While glue is drying on a regular project, I make up some of the little handy items that make life easier in the shop or office from the scarps in the wood bin
The first one is a desk organizer for the incoming mail, the papers to be filed and the top has all those address labels I get from everywhere. It is made from oak plywood with solid edges and a solid wood block to hold the scissors in a handy place. I cut the grooves in the plywood and then added the solid edge bands to cover the slots and hide the core. It is finished with Zar 120 stain and lacquer.
The second one is a little shelf to hold my three bottles of Titebond glue that used to sit all over the shop and I’d have to hunt for the right one. Now they have a home and I know right where to find them.
By the way, these mustard bottles are way more easier to use than the original glue bottles and they are FREE!
