A friend at work asked my to make him something that he could put papers in and hang it on his cubicle wall. This is what I came up with. All pine and mostly done by hand. I used a bandsaw to saw my angles and round cut outs. All the fitting and trimming was done with rasps, planes, and chisels.
The first part of the hanger is through mortised and wedged into the body and I dovetailed the other part of the hanger to that one.
I just finished putting on a coat of shellac, two more and it’ll be done.

The more I do hand work, the more I am amazed at how well my joinery turns out. I’m slowly proving to myself I don’t a lot of power equipment to work wood.
