    some simple flat work outa scrap

    this was made outa scrap oak and some china birch ply and some paint grade ply plus one sheet of depot oak.. sometimes we think will save some dollars when we use less than top quality materials well.. i am done with china birch for anything that i want square and straight.. the partitions in this were a major pain in the neck to get close..and one of them had a 1/2" curve at the last 6".. i made it work and its hid pretty well but if i had used good ply i would have been done much quicker.. so its outa here and on to better things..Click image for larger version.

    Looks like a very functional piece of furniture Larry. The oak on that is really nice. I like it.

    And working with the cheap stuff aint no worse than working ruff lumber. Ruff lumber you got to plane straighten and rip first. China ply ya got the same thing except plane.
    It could be worse You could be on fire.
    Stupid hurts.

    I agree with you Larry, had one cabinet I had to spray down with water and sit bags of concrete on to straighten out for a week. I've since found a local supplier and paid the extra for regionally made products. Good looking cabinet, curious how you used to various spaces in it though and why the wheels are offset on one end?

    Looking good! I see it's called a cutting table, is Randi going to allow some wild game processing on it?

    looks to me Darren, the wheels may be part of a cart

    It's gotta be a craft table right? Sure looks pretty darn good. Your scrap lumber is better than my good stuff

    Good looking project, Larry! Glad you were able to find a big enough hammer to make an attitude adjustment on that ply!!!

    good eyes guys the box is setting on a low cart for working on large stuff and moving it around in the finishing room.. this box is for quilt work, for cutting the pieces to size and shape for various quilt patterns,, and the spacing was determined by the storage boxes she uses. the rollers were put on after i got it inside the house..

    Final box looks good Larry and I am sure Randi is pleased with it How was it to get it in and down to her quilting shop, I know it is heavy and a tight fit to even get it in the house...
