Mom is a 4th grade teacher. The crappy mdf shelf she had to hold her students games broke completely. She said hey you build one for me. Not “can you” but ” build me one”. She’s still mom.

Anyway maple plywood, mahogany accents. I liked all of the figure on the top piece. Poly. It’s on wheels so she can push it around the classroom.

42 inches high. 30 inches wide. 10 inches deep.

Thanks a million for looking.

The swede.

Maybe I should post a picture of the paddle dad made for mom out of the piece of trim that still sits on top of the fridge at my parents house. Thanks for the comments guys, I see there are a bunch of moms kids here too

It’s on wheels so she can push it around the classroom. Sounds like that’s not the only thing she pushes around. ;)
