When I am struggling with a design for a piece (like now) I will distract myself with something else. LOML's mom has 10 different pullouts in her kitchen that I have made over the years. First the full extension ones for her pantry so she could get more usable space and easy access to all those pesky pantry items that hide in the back and get "replaced" before they are even used. Then some narrow ones for her medicinal supplies that she keeps handy.
As we get older it is harder to stoop down and reach back into those lower cabinets so for her birthday I gave her still more pullouts (it was her idea) for her lower cabinets. I thought I would get all 5 done this weekend but, the wide ones will have to go in tomorrow or the next day as time allows. I installed the cookie-sheet pullout already and these two narrow ones will go in today at lunch.
So, all in all this is a totally selfish post to help me feel like I am making progress while the final design of my bedroom chest of drawers percolates around in my gray matter. Here's a few shop shots.
