I’ve been so crazy busy over the last couple weeks that I haven’t even been able to get on LJ’s. Most of the time it’s been out in the woodshop… So that’s a good thing…. Right?! Lol.
Anyhow… The ex is now officially my ex husband and he came and got the last of his stuff out of my woodshop today. Now it’s ALL MINE!!! :)
So… I had this empty dead space in between the cabinets. Now that the house (and garage obviously) are officially and legally mine… I can do what I want. So I decided to make use of this space.
I put up two French cleats. I used 3/4 plywood.
Then I made this box out of scrap wood. The shelves were actually made out of a board that my nephew used to make a school project. It had a drawing on it and foam pieces glued on. I scraped them off and stuck it through the planer. The sides are from a pallet board.
I used pocket holes to put this box together. I put them on the outside so they would be hidden due to the placement between the cabinets.
I added the cleat on the back and a piece of 3/4” plywood as a spacer. (Got that idea from Trip. I think his name on here is Sailingandsuch. I know that’s his YouTube name)
Then I added a cleat and spacers on my little plastic storage bin.
I started out just wanting to make shelves. Wasnt sure what I was going to put on it. But then I realized it was a great place to put my drill and other things. So now I have my charger, my drills and my little bit sets all right there. On the top I’ve added my other little tool boxes. They have some of my screws and my router bits.
Plus… I took my little framed pegboard I made a while back and hung it up making that corner a little more useful.
This was a fun quick project. I’m happy with how the space turned out. And.. Because they are hung using French cleats… I can move them anywhere I want if I change my mind later. :)
I have some other projects I’ve been working on as well that I’d love to share with you. Just need to add the finish to them.
Hope you are having a great weekend!
