This sadly is not a new project so it may get deleted but I couldnt find a TAB for posting Old Projects.
I see LBD’s gauge is still there so I though I might give it a go too.

Background:-
When No 4 son was living in Sydney in 2011 he asked me for a small TV table to elevate his TV so he could remove the stack of books he was using.

Construction:-

He wanted a rustic design and nothing too fancy, and it needed to be flat packed via the post.

So this is the design and finish we agreed on and constructed. I then marked it up with construction details and sent it off.

Packaged it up and mailed it off, upon receipt he assembled it and put it to use as per image No 1..

So whats the G.K.C reference all about ? if your curious enough go to.

-- Regards Rob

Neat job rc... different bit of joinery.

Now if it was #1 son, NOT living in Sydney, would he have asked for a large TV?

PS. I’m guessing you couldn’t sand it (picture #3) due to the theft!

Thanks guys, a design that was required similar to that of an Ikea flatpack, looks like I made it 12 months before joining LJs.

Funny you should metion No 1 Son he has a TV so big I reckon two people would struggle to carry it, or at least I would anyway.

My sander still has not reappered, ... really annoying I must say.

Speak into my good eye! thread cutter??? You are talking to a geriatric who would be much older if he remembered how to count…

Funuy you should mention that pottzy... this was my very first “woodworking project” back in 1973 done on the balcony of a 1st. floor flat using a Black & Decker drill and disc pad… refurbished air force foot locker,

was recently used (2018) as a prop for SAKOF!

Dear felon rc,
This is a courtesy letter informing you the Federal Police have a warrant for your arrest and it will be executed next week 17 -21 Jun unless you hand your self in to the local Police station beforehand.

The Warrant contents are based on the details below
Extract from Crimes (Currency) Act 1981

16. Defacing or destroying current coins or current paper money

A person shall not, without the consent, in writing, of an authorised person, intentionally deface, disfigure, mutilate or destroy any coin or paper money that is lawfully current in Australia.

Penalty:

in the case of a person, not being a body corporate – $5,000 or imprisonment for two years, or both; or
in the case of a person, being a body corporate – $10,000.

17. Selling defaced coins or paper money

A person shall not sell or offer to sell a coin or paper money that is lawfully current in Australia and that has been defaced, disfigured or mutilated, knowing it to have been defaced, disfigured or mutilated.

Penalty:

in the case of a person, not being a body corporate – $5,000 or imprisonment for 2 years, or both; or
in the case of a person, being a body corporate – $10,000.

Note: ‘Paper money’ means money comprising a banknote written, printed or otherwise made on paper or any other material. Paper money shall be taken to be current paper money if it is lawfully current in Australia or in a country other than Australia by virtue of a law in force in Australia or in that country, as the case may be.

All Australian banknotes, present and all past issues, are lawfully current in Australia.

So in preparation for the leaving the pond you should pack your tooth brush and any items you may need whilst being held pending your appearance.

Also please fully understand the FBI have also been informedof the situation in case you may perhaps were thinking of taking flight and as a result all international duck migrating paths have now been monitored.

Signed:-

The Sherrif

NOT here in Churchill, that’s all we trade with… my wallet is full of it (and don’t say like me)...

That’s why your lost, moth ridden wallet was in such great demand!

Just like my currency!

In Churchill that wallet wouldn’t even earn you a mugging. We deal in paper not bleeding polymer.

But then again someone that shuffles clamps is not expected to deal paper cards.
