Lately, I have been making enough trips to the big box that the plastic bags I bring my loot home in have been multiplying like rabbits. I use them for trash bags in the shop, so naturally I needed a place to keep them.
This is based on a Woodworking for Mere Mortals (WWMM) project that Steve Ramsey posted a few days ago … http://youtu.be/qgmFlvWWusA
This one is built from some scraps of poplar I had in the storage room (better to use it than toss it in the fire pit), and it is slightly larger than the one Steve Ramsey built.
I did the logo on the front by reversing the graphic and printing it on a piece of slick paper (the backing from a sheet of address labels) with an ink jet printer. The transfer from the paper to the wood looked fine, and I let it dry for a couple of hours but made the mistake of using a water-borne finish on it, causing it to bleed into the wood. I wish I would have used a spray lacquer … might have wound up with a better result.
