necessity the mother of all invention
« on: August 18, 2015, 01:30:25 am »
I started to put this in Ianab's simple projects thread but decided I hated to infringe on it. So here I  am putting my own little projects out there for all to see. Now I am no where near the wood worker that so many of you on here are, and my designs are rather simple. They are even out of pine dimension lumber and pine plywood.   


 
 

  

  

  

 
My lovely bride had bought a cheap little shoe rack that the kids shoes never fit on and it was always falling apart so I had to do something. The ends are a foot tall so the kids have somewhere  to sit to put on their shoes overall  it's 2' tall and 6' long. I used some self adhesive felt on the bottom to keep it from scuffing the floor when it gets moved.

Now that's a good idea!! Should of put some adjustable legs on to to raise as the girls grow.   :D  I like that design. My wood working skills stop when the tree hits the ground.

I really like the ends as well. Nice job and I'm sure those 2 cuties love it as well, especially since dad made it.

Like myself, your woodworking skills may not be in ANDY's and, quite a few others, capability, but I see no reason for you to be ashamed.  You have a good design which meets your needs.
Carry on.

The wife and I bought a front load washer and dryer we looked at the little add on cabinets to put on them, 300 bucks a piece! Not this boy, out came the saw again.
 

  

  

 
then we needed to do something with the wasted space above them. So...

  

 
then we had to have a new vanity to match so out came the saw again.
 

  

  

 
One happy Mrs.

My folks had an old microwave stand that was giving up (it was as old as me) so we set out to replace it.

Great projects. Looks like you have been bitten by the bug and will soon need a bunch of lumber and machinery to cure you. :)

You have created  a bunch of useful and attractive 'home additions'!  The shoe storage/bench is my favorite. You can add "bun feet" as the girls grow. Carry on.........

 Of course it's a challenge sometimes to keep a hammer where you can use it when you have the "help" I have!  :D :D :D

I like that picture.
That "help" may not be much help now,but they will remember "helping" for years to come. Let them help now so they will be a help in 10 years.
