I was busy experimenting with Les Elms dipping method the past couple of days, making wood pens, playdoh, dowels, and while that's been drying, I have been laying on my belly filling in cracks in my blacktop driveway. Doing 3 tubes of filler a day, that's all my back can take.
This morning, my neighbor, (a close friend), asked me if I could make him a panel to cover his electric panel, this after he had a new kitchen put in. Im not sure why he didn't just have a door made to cover it, but then I saw why.
Hed have to move his fridge everytime he needed to open the door.
He just wanted something he could paint , and lift it off without a problem.
simple, but still took me almost 3 hours.
Used hard maple and some birch ply.
To hang it to lift off, I used my biscuit cutter, and he will attach two table top fasteners to the wall and just lay the panel over them so it hangs snug to the wall, just what he wanted. Exactly what he wanted. He only wanted 3 sides, didn't want it to be in the way of the fridge.
Ill sand it down tomorrow and he will prime and paint it.
Once its done, I believe they are going to buy a white message board or a cork board and hang it on it to cover up the panel.
I suggested I make a small spice rack but they don't want to move the toaster oven, but a message board will look fine there.
another happy customer. Him and the wife loved it. don't take much to make some people happy.
I decided to charge them one extra hotdog at the next bbq.
