    Measure Once, Build it twice

    So, Just slapped together a little box to hold my 7" 45rpm records.

    Unfortunately, it appears it could stand to be another 1/4" to 1/2" wide.

    It holds most of the records, but some of them have a special plastic outer cover that is a little too wide for it.

    It's just pine glued and screwed, but I get to make another one!

    Now if I can just figure out what to use this one for...

    Maybe an organizer for holding cans of solvents and glues in the shop.

    Why not a biodegradable flower pot? It should last a couple of years at least even outside.
    Best regards,

    I like the biodegradable flower pot idea!!

    Doh! Well you could always use it for the ones without the plastic sleeves and buy more to fill up two.

    Not big enough to hold a list of all my unfinished projects, let alone what else needs to be done.

    Hey, you did put the frame around the entertainment center. Now just the doors and the screen and you'll meet the end of year deadline
