The middle grand daughter called as asked if I could make her and extension to her make up table to hold her blow dryer, curling iron and one other long thing with a cord on it. I said sure and went there to take dimensions. Granddaughter #3 was there and said Grandpa, I don’t have a make up table, will you make me one and put the holes right in the top for the blow dryer etc?? I can’t say no to those girls!!

Anyway here are the two pieces. they are pine and painted with white enamel. The table is 11 1/4” x43” long with a shelf under neath and a power cord hole all the way through on the left end. I just mounted them a few minutes ago into the studs.

The extension is screwed to the existing table and to the wall.

Cheers, Jim

I hope my grandaughter’s do not see this Jim. I would have to try and sneak my Unisaw onto an Air France plane bound to Paris, then onto the train…It might not fit into the trunk of my rented Focus ;>}

Great job Jim, like the others have said, it’s easy to see who is a soft touch.
But then isn’t it wonderful to be loved and appreciated.
You are a lucky man.
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you all for the nice comments. The little one just got home and called to thank me. She was so excited that I did it so fast for her. They are worth ever minute of the work!!

Hi John, a skill saw and a hand jigsaw and drill will do the trick!!They’ll fit in a carry on!

Cheers, Jim

These could catch on quickly Jim. The different size holes will hold some odd shaped things. Love those grandchildren.
Nice work.
