    Just finished Sock Cubby #2

    Last week my friend that owns a skateboarding pro shop called me because she needed a new display for their shop. They started selling funky socks about a year ago and it has taken off big time. They were running out of room to display them. They just had them hanging on hooks on slot wall. But that took up too much space. Here's what I came up with...

    It's 52" wide x 82" high x 6" deep. It's 11x14 "cubbies" in size so it has 154 individual 4x5x6 compartments. I started it Tuesday morning at 9:30. The client came with his truck and picked it up at 5:30 on Thursday! He got it back to the shop and his wife LOVED IT. About 3:30 on Friday afternoon my phone rang and he said that they wanted another one exactly like it. He picked it up at about 7:00 tonight. I think I did pretty well for being a one man operation.

    Oh yeah, it's all 1/2" & 1/4" Birch ply.

    Looks good!

    The cubbies are all half laps or dadoes on the sides? I'm asking because I built a vaguely similar cabinet for a friends game shop (for storing shoe boxes of magic the gathering cards - who knew!) and did dado joints which was a bit fussy to get setup exactly right.

    They're all dado joints on all of the vertical members with the shelves slid in.

    You know, with cabinets like that a widower would not have to do laundry so often.

    I can just see it now---One cabinet for shirts, another for shorts, another for pants and then in the winter you could add cabinets for all kinds of coats, scarves, and you name its.

    A guy would only have to do laundry 2.37012987012987 times a year. Man, that's progress!

    John, us old goats will remember you and your name will go down in fame.

    Enjoy,
