My wife decided to redo our bedroom last year and part of the remodel included new furniture. After looking for some pieces to add to the room we came up with nothing that was either the right style or the right price. Thus the suggestion, “Could you make something?” Now I’m not one to ever shy away from a project in wood that’s requested by my better half. #1 It keeps me busy and #2 It puts me in the shop. I looked at a couple things on line to get a rough idea after she told me want she would like to put in the room. After she approved, I drew up some pans and went to the room designer (again my wife of course) for approval. Both items were made from poplar and the majority of the build was done with a Kreg Pocket Hole Jig/screws. I’ve learned to really like this.
Her writing desk has 2 leaves to expand her area. The main wall unit will get granite tops from the local dealer’s junk pile of small pieces and then painted once the room is dry-walled over the existing TG cedar planks. So except for their getting painted the color she chooses, my building is complete.
