First off though, the bedroom furniture is ready for delivery, my son is moving from an apartment to a house in a month or so, so its being stored here getting a bit of sun to tan the cherry a bit more. I must say they are aging nicely.
|The side panels are the same on all pieces, |
cherry from my hometown, should have been firewood!
|Lots of storage here|
|The dresser provides lots more storage options.|
In addition to the Chest and Dresser I made a special surprise to go with them, more will be revealed in time once the surprise is gifted to its unsuspecting recipient...
Organization to feed the OCD soul...
|Tool Chest Willy Nilly|
The foam is quite easy to use, but I did not follow their directions where it showed scooping out what you don't need which was very tedious. Instead I drew around the item, cut all the way through with the knife and then shaved the cutout piece to the thickness I wanted to raise the item to the proper height. This let me cut sections of the piece to completely support the tool that had a staggered profile, like the marking gauge. This is the top drawer of my workbench so these are all right at hand and are always where they need to be - wish I had done this years ago.
|Time for some layout|
|These guys are going no where!!|
|Much better organized plane rack with everything within reach.|
No back to figuring out what to do about tool chest since this project transferred some stuff from the chest and some stuff from the wall.
