So I had some spare time on my hands today since the glass for my sconce didn’t arrive yesterday. Since I also had some left over plywood I decided to make a cabinet to store my finishing supplies. I’ve noticed that they don’t have a proper home in my wood shop, and I’ve been toting them back and forth from the other shop where I have a place that I store solvents and what not. Not an ideal situation.
So my “vision” for this, quickly drawn up in sketch up, was a simple cabinet with shelves sized for gallon flat cans, quart flat cans and regular quart cans – as well as some dedicated storage for 9 x 11 sheet sandpaper.
I picked through my plywood this morning and decided I had enough leftovers to make this pretty much as I designed it. I cut all the part to size, set up my dado blade and went to town. I only put one dado in the wrong spot, and I don’t think it will show in the finished project. The door is just a flat sheet of 3/4″ ply, in the morning I’ll cut the door, sand the outside and brush on a coat of shellac. I should be able to finish this off in a couple of hours. Its not a thing of beauty, but it will help keep the shop organized.
I need a place to drill bits, router bits and power hand tools (router, drill, sander, etc). Not enough plywood left to make another cabinet, so that will have to wait.
