I am trying to finish up my tool cabinet. Still have drawers in the bottom to make.
Wait. What? I just meant that my post wasn't in response to yours. I was apologizing for jumping in line there. Though, my timeline is "by September".
LOL... I fixed it. It's the frigging shop.
That tool cabinet is frigging awesome. Wish I had 1/2 the wood skills you must have!
I just finished a pair of bar stools I donated to my local Ducks Unlimited chapter. They will be on their annual fundraiser auction tomorrow.
After suffering with a bad cold/sore throat for the last few weeks, I was asked by a lady at work if I would make her a display cabinet for her Harley Davidson poker chips. I figured it would be a good simple project to get me back into the shop and back up to speed. It is made of 1/4" walnut plywood with a 1/4" maple plywood back, glued together. The edges are walnut with grooves to go around the plywood and also accommodate a Lexan cover. The right side was cut and then the top was glued to the Lexan to slide open.
It holds 50 chips. She sent me a picture after putting her chips in.
She doesn't know it yet, but I am also finishing up a second one to give her for Christmas as I figure she will fill the first one quickly.
well done indeed .... my bet is it will become a heirloom that will passed down the line in her family
Poker chips are interesting to me, simply because I have one, the only thing I have left from my grandpa. An elks-club poker chip from before 1950. Supposedly one of the chips Mr Browning could have also played with my grandpa and their hunting buddies in Utah. Ahnm, yes, THAT Mr Browning. And yep, grandpa was allowed to buy a #002 automatic pump shot gun...details on and on.. old fart story to follow.
The only thing I remember he ever tried to teach me, "don't gamble". And gave me that chip. Definitely a mixed message, yes?
Best part for her was that when she asked what she owed me, I said a smile. I had all the materials needed laying around already so I didn't spend anything extra. Others at work suggested I make them for sale, but they don't understand that with time and materials they would cost over $100.00
