I needed a stand for my bench top drill press that has been residing in a corner. So I built one out of assorted species scrap plywood I had laying around. It looked pretty ugly unfinished so I painted it in tribute to my favorite NFL team. I have been a fan since the inaugural season.

Nothing fancy but it will do the job. The graphics are vinyl stickers. I realized after painting that the “Superbowl” lettering was off center. All butt joint construction. Finished with $10 worth of Spray paint. Paint isn’t perfect either (over spray in places) but it’s only going to be in the shed, right? The lighter spots in the picture are reflections in the morning light.

I still need to make a knob for the door & a pull for the drawer. But that is no hurry. I’m thinking football shaped made from Walnut.

Thanks for looking Dean
