This is a very simple project to help us get organized. It now holds the kids coloring books and crayons and stuff like that. All of this stuff usually clutters the kitchen island so this was a much needed addition
It only took me about 4 late evening to complete.
It’s made of birch ply and finished with 2 coats of Minwax Wipe on Poly.
My router jig for making dados failed me so I cut them by hand with a chisel and my router plane. This is a lot harder to do in plywood. The rebates were partially done on the TS then cleaned up with a shoulder plane. I’ll use any excuse to use my hand tools. I should have just made it out of pine, it would have been a lot more fun for me but anyway, I digress…
Sorry for that blurry second picture but that where it sits in its new home. With a table and chairs that I also made for the kids.
Next kids project….. Bunk beds! Looking forward to that one.
Thanks for looking!
