Basement Desk

Well, it took a while, but I finally got it “done.” At least in that I’m using it at this point. I’ve been working at this thought pretty much all of 2010 off and on. I was wanting to get it done before 2011 and it was put into position on New Years Eve. It’s made out of cedar and plywood. It’s not as precise as I would like, but I think it’s pretty good for what could be called by second woodworking project. The biggest challenge was the basement floor. Not Level At All. However, a few shims and some repositioned screws, it was made to work. Anything round will not stay put, but not much round stuff is put on it at this point. I’m just happy it’s in and usable. Eventually, I try adding a couple of drawers and a door to part of it, but I’m in no rush for that.


Kite Shelving

Finished some shelving that I made to store my kites. Made the shelves out of some yellow pine that was from one of our barns that blew down a while back and some cedar. The French Cleat was made all from cedar. If you want the plans, you can download the SketchUp file.

And for those who have asked, I currently have 33 kites.
