My neighbor asked for my help in tearing down his son’s old “Jungle Jim”. I agreed, as long as I could keep any usable wood. It turned out to be Cedar, and there was a lot of it! Since I needed some storage space above my workbenches for the little things, I decided to use the newly acquired Cedar. Nothin’ fancy, just straight forward design and construction. Finished with flat polyurethane. Now I have a place for nail sets, calculator, slide rule, hole saws, and countless other “little things”.

At first, I thought the project was much bigger (like taking up a side of your garage). LoL .It has a great look. Nice job.
