My wife requested a bath caddy, and I wanted to share the nice one I found in a 36” piece of cedar 2×6 left over from an outdoor project. Sorry for the lack of in-progress photos, got going and forgot to take any pictures until I was done! Pretty simple build – only took a couple of hours over the weekend.

First ripped the 2×6 to a ~3-1/2” width so that I could resaw on my little Craftsman 10” bandsaw, and ran the resulting parts through the planer to clean them up as 3-1/2×5/8” stock for the sides and ends, and cut the end profile out with the bandsaw. Then I ripped the remaining 1-1/2×2” cutoff into 3 strips and milled them down to roughly 1-1/2×3/8” for the bottom slats. Them simply cut a dado to receive the slats about 1/4” from the bottom of the sides, and glued in the slats to hopefully prevent them from sliding around. Simply edge-glued the end pieces into place, and added a fired in a few brads for good measure.

Overall—a nice little project for a unexpectedly warm Saturday afternoon to spend in the garage during January in Nebraska.

Nice job. I like the new clamp rack too. I just made one for my clamps.
