    Why did I do this

    I am building a night stand, and waiting for finish to dry enough to rub out, made this. Not sure why I did this. I saw some similar on the w.w.w. and felt motivated. A long time neighbor moved and left a pile of trash in the street. In the pile were 3 pieces of walnut 3/4 x8x24 old,old stuff. They had hand cut dovetails, shallow daddos, and bug holes, and square cut nails. Nice work to. Seems they may have been used in a small bookcase or similar years ago. Beautiful clear wood.

    Made the case and slid this a.c. line monitor in it. Had the monitor from my TV sales & service business back in day. Used 1 piece of that wood.

    I saw a video of the young man Rob posted about where he did something similar for a phone, would make a cool gift...
