First project off of the new bench is downright handy but…not quite so sexy.
For the longest time I have nowhere to store my drill and impact driver. They’d roll laround on various surfaces, the floor, etc.. I also had no convenient place for my charger, which led to a lot of time spent waiting for batteries to charge :) So I made this puppy. Makes the really easy to grab and find, I’m loving it so far.
First project I’ve built that I built it 100% in sketchup, dimensioned it, took it to the shop for reference and built it exactly. Everything else has had a loose plan and a general model, but this was so much better.
Joined with dadoes and rabbets, pretty simple. All paint grade maple plywood, and roasted maple for the edging. Lots of new skills learned and reinforced with this build. Best hand-cut half blind dovetails I’ve done yet! Figured this was a perfect time for practice, not really caring if they came out like crap. Drawer is made from Poplar with some scrap cherry for the front.
Haven’t finished it, like most of my other shop projects just cant be bothered. I hate finishing, I’d outsource it if i could.
Thanks for Looking! Appreciate any comments.
