It's been a while since I've posted, but I just had to share.
Monday was a holiday here, and after spending part of Saturday looking
for CD racks, I thought that making one would be a good way of making
some sawdust, and using up some of the reclaimed Rimu lying around
cluttering up the garage and basement. I had bought an old Rimu school
desk for $5 at an auction (minor gloat), and apart from some surface
damage, it was just screaming to be recycled into something nice. I
resurfaced half of the top, and used that for the sides and top of
tower. Cut some shelves from some old 3/4" Rimu T&G. For those of you
unlucky enough to not live in NZ, Rimu is a beautiful native we have
here. I thought I had some nice 3/8 T&G for the back, but it looks
like Matai (another beaut NZ native), so I'll have to work something
else out. Just about ready to start glueing.
Friends of ours heard what I was doing (literally, on the phone) and
said they might want one too! I feel a house warming present coming on
I think, and I'll have to spend some time in the garage making sawdust!
Was great just to get in and make some sawdust. I love seeing things
