    From the humblest of beginnings - FINISHED!!

    The LOML and I needed something, bad. After all, we are getting up in years a bit and it can be difficult getting by without it. So, I decided to make one.

    From these humble beginnings, a few scrap cut offs of plywood from another project Click image for larger version.

    Simple, true. But called to perform the noblest of functions. It is what we needed and we shall make good use of it in the coming years. In fact, we will soon wonder how we ever got along without it.

    Anyone care to guess?

    A first aid box that can be carried around, used to step on it to reach high places, or to sit on it when you're tired, or to draw or write on it, eat your lunch, leave your tools, with the assurance that if anything wrong happens you won't need to rush to the bathroom because you'll have it right there with all the disinfectants, alcohol, pills, band aids, defibrilator, iron lung, so that you'll be "SAFE"?

    I think I overcome both of you Vaughn and Ken
    Best regards,
    Toni

    No, no no. It's for the back patio, where they're going to store the SuperSoaker guns for when the "Addams" are peeking through the fence...

    No, hold your applause, don't embarrass me.

    ...art

    ps: 2nd guess was a box for holding the remote controls in the LR
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Good idea, but I would have used PT plywood.
