Got an order for a towel rack/shelf yesterday ,upper management you know .
She saw one on PINTREST but forgot to save it so I went by description only and made it up by what I understood .
Here it is maple 1/2” X 3” and some walnut for the towel bar .
Shelf’s are dadoed and glued with little walnut squares just for accent .
Size is 16”W X 22”H X3”D
Finish is satin spray lacquer .
Hung with two screws .
Glad I got this done now I am allowed to play again .LOL

I keep trying to remember “What would Kiefer” do when I am hurrying, then I back up and do it slower. LOL! This is “what Kiefer would do.” I’m sure the customer was happy!

The walnut sets it off beautifully, nice work!!! Did management approve? Did it compare to the expectations that pinterest set?

That came out really nice…! I could use something similar in the bathroom and all I would need to do is show your project to my management and I will most likely get a work order.

I usually try to negotiate new or upgraded tools when management asks for special orders.

Nicely done. When my wife asks for something to be built, it just gives me more of a excuse to spend time in the shop. It’s a win win. As long as they approve of it.

Glad I am not the only one that gets projects from my wife from Pinterest.

Thanks an it sounds like you guys all understand how it works .
That Pintrest is a real headache but comes in handy at times and this was almost quicker then getting flowers or something ,I hate going shopping unless its for tools and I can go by myself !
So everybody get your workorder and have fun in the shop and keep management happy it goes a long way .

Very nice Klaus. I like the contrasting woods and the clean design. I have a few back orders from management myself so this is a good reminder for me.

My complements on a nice project. I like the contrast of the walnut on the towel rack and the accent pieces on the edges.
