Rabbits, pencils, this, that
Shelves, closet, under the bed!

Maple, board, idea, line
Bevel, miter, hidden spline

Seventy, thirty by fifteen
Compass, drill, tape, trim

Plane, glue, clamps, rags
Router, saw, ear plugs

Sander, vacuum, finish, clock
Slide, adjuster, level, lock

Pencils, beads, rabbits, socks
Cozy in a neat new box!


Here are words that did not rhyme: This is a new addition to my older project where you can find details. When combining metal and wood precision is the challenge. Aluminum extrusions would not bulge the way wood does, hence the length of the box had to match that of the above shelves within quarter of millimeter (either that or I’m paranoid).

I opted for slim single drawer box instead of originally planned larger cabinet to keep everything light and airy. In the future I might add small potted plant stand to the unit on the outside.

Thanks for looking.

Nicely done. I like the simple lines. Less is often more.

A beveled carcase front is always so sophisticated.
Rags and plugs don’t really rhyme but your pink denizens make it all forgiven
Nice margins.
