Now mind you, these books are before my time, at least before my woodworking time that is…
I am trying to hunt down the plans for a project my Dad built before I was born, it was a “Cobblers Bench” coffee table, which was apparently a fairly popular project in the 1950s and 1960s. This one was somewhat different… In most of them, if you were the cobbler, you would face directly your bank of drawers, and the top of the drawer box was enclosed somewhat, but with trim to keep things like nails and needles and such from falling off…
The Sloane version, the drawer box is turned 90 degrees, and it has a recess in the top that a copper box (that needs to be built) is fitted into for use, in the case of ours, as a planter for decorative plants.
I would very much like to reproduce this project, actually I would like to build 4 of them, 1 for my Dad as the original is gone, one for myself, and one for each of my brothers…
Sadly, Dads woodworking library left him years ago along with his tools. And I was hoping that MAYBE one of you fine Lumberjocks might be familiar with Mr. Sloanes books, and could tell me which book the Cobblers Bench plan is in.
