    hole in the wall insert for my nephew

    well kids, here we go! after 1 major revision, and 1 minor adjustment, my nephew has given the green light on the design . the whole thing is 66 inches tall by 28 inches wide. he wanted 2 parts with doors at the top, a big drawer for a couple of blankets and a pillow, a medium size misc stuff drawer, a drawer for dvd's, and a couple of adjustable shelves (not asking too much is he? ). the case will be red oak plywood, and solid red oak. here is a pic of the design as he approved it, both sketchup original, and painted.

    I'm digging it
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.

    Looks good, Dan. Man, your nephew sure seems to have a lot of holes in the wall. Isn't this the second "hole in the wall" project you've worked on?

    well, we spent most of the afternoon hunting down the lumber for this one. so far we've got the oak plywood, and the oak boards. tomorrow we get the baltic birch plywood for the drawers tomorrow, as we showed up about 10 minutes after they closed. the cutting of the boards and such commences tomorrow. my sister will be doing the staining/varnishing before the final assembly.

    we got the baltic birch today, and started cutting. the pics show all of the lumber, all of the shelf parts cut, getting the sides ready for cutting the dadoes, all of the shelf dadoes taped off (that old trick really works! not one bit of veneer torn out), all of the dadoes routed (sorry, no pics of the rabbets for the back, perhaps next time), and the first test fitting. nice and tight, and square as all get out. now i have to wait until next thursday to continue (it's that whole work thing).
