RE: DIY Shoe Box part 2

in Build-It3 months ago

This looks awesome, @cmplxty. So this is why I tend to find you around my DIY posts, a fellow woodworker. I might need to do something like this to keep off the mess I make while working. I've taking my mom's sewing table as hostage for my tools. Did you get this as a plan or did you plan it yourself?

Also, I see some good tools around. There goes my tool envy. You know the good kind.

About the mistake, I like the idea of having the chance to fix something that went wrong. It certainly helps get your mind working outside of the box (see what I did there).

Yeah man I love the DIY woodworking stuff! It's so much fun lol. Sorry for the late reply, life has intruded in the way of my commenting these past few days!

The shoe box has been a huge help really, it's gotten the clutter away from the door and you can close the lid when you're done! Love it lol. Plus the look of raw wood like that is one of my favorites!

Most of the time I try to come up with these things on my own with no design besides what I have in the old brain. It doesn’t always work out but I like it like that! Lol. The design could have been a little more precise by writing it down and doing exact blueprints and stuff but that takes some of the fun out of it I think.

I hear you on tool envy man! I’m always looking for tools that I want to eventually own but can’t due to the space constraints we have. I’ve gotten a good collection of tools over time though, my dads helped a lot with that. The drills have come from him which is huge but he knows I love tools and worked with him with the tools for many years so he’s helped me out which is great.

Fixing the mistake with a creative solution was fun, a little trying at times but once you get the idea in your head it can often work out at some point lol

Ha, ha, ha. Well, nothing beats getting stuff done with your hands. It's just pure bliss. I hear you on space constrains. I have no space for more things and yet I keep getting new jigs and tools, but that's how it goes. I'll have to make up a chest or something to get all the clutter away from the sewing machine.

This is the spice of DIY. Even when you follow a plan things can go south and it's up to the old walnut to get things back on track.
