Tie cubbies

These two tie cubbies are made of 5/8” maple that I planed from rough lumber, and they’re backed with 1/2 ” birch plywood stained to match. The maple is stained dark at the customer (aka neighbour)’s request and finished with two coats of varnish.

Each cubby hole measures 4” across, 3.5” high and are 4.5” deep. The dimensions for each cubby is 24” high and 22” wide approximately. (Forgot to measure the finished product)

They are both very heavy, so are hung using two Z clips each from Lee Valley which were easy to use and I would highly recommend.

Thanks for looking.

They came out nice, Sandra. I know you weren’t big on the darkstain with maple (and iI agree with you), but the person who will be using it should love it.

Great work, just one question: what IS a tie?

Well done!
The customer/neighbor (neighbor!!!) looks quite pleased.
That’s what counts….

I could have used a few of these, back in the day….
When I had to wear a tie every day!!!
Should the need arise….
Could you please make an identical duplicate for me??? ;^)
