    I make pens. Kits are cheap. They're easy to make - 3 or 4 hours start to finish. I give them away to friends and family.

    I would love to be able to make some decent furniture. I really want to build my dad a nice wine rack for fathers day, or his birthday which is a week before fathers day. He has a huge has and has tons of room for small pieces of furniture. And he drinks a ton of wine. I need some decent plans though, and better tools. And some high quality lumber.

    Have toyed with the idea of producing them in kit form as well for easy flat pack shipping . . . that would leave assembly and finishing choice up to the customer.

    Yes, I use baltic birch. It is slightly heavier than basic hardwood plywood but stiffer and better with screws. Joints are rabbeted, glued and screwed both on the drawer and the carcass.

    I would love to be able to build something like this one day. I can only imagne the amount of time that would take.

    That wet bar type cabinet is awesome. Like I said before, I really want to build some kind of wine rack for my dad. Something like this would be pretty cool for in his house, or his cabin. What kind of wood is that? It looks like just a simple shelac finish?

    I wish I had a 4runner or fj just so I can put cabinets like this in it and and make it an expo rig.

    Thank you. It's all 1x3 poplar boards, no plywood. The finish is early american stain with minwax satin poly. It's a pretty flat finish, it looks shinier than it is because of the flash on the camera. The ice maker on the left is on rails for easier access, and the doors have frosted glass now.


    My next projects are a coffee table, and a series of hooks and narrow shelving for our mud room.

    You wouldn't happen to have a set of plans for this would you? I'm sure you probably just built it off your head, but plans would be awesome. I would give something lke that a shot to build.

    These will be a good start. I used them for general measurements to get started.
