My wife loves to scrapbook, and she is very good at it! She asked for a place to work instead of the kitchen table. I got the idea from a website and customized it for her needs. All of the boxes are based on the size of the plastic holders in the upper boxes. These boxes are not square, although you cannot tell that from the pictures. They all had to be the same size if they are to be interchangeable. It is made from baltic birch,primed and painted to the color of her choice. ( if Mama’s happy, everybody’s happy !!!) The legs are joined with piano hinges which makes it easy if you have to move it. The top is birch with a formica top wrapped with maple and beveled. One of the drawers will also hold rolls of ribbon. All in all it was a fun project to build. I did enlist the help of a friend of mine who has a left tilt saw. That made all the difference in the world when cutting the boxes. I also made the cover for her work chair. The only reason she married me is that I can cook and sew.
