just one of many small projects I’ve been working on during my many sleepless nights. ( Insomniac )

I have been moving around small scraps from various other projects from one end of the shop to the other and finally got around to doing something with some of them.

no screws or nails, just all glued in place ( forgot i screwed in the back..)

measures out are 17.5”x5.5”x~8 3/8”

the top and middle shelves are made from reclaimed 3/8 plywood from a house dismantle
the bottom shelf is 5/8 or some metric size pine plywood.
the sides are pine 1×4s.
the back is a piece of 1/4” OSB
the front face is trimmed in thin oak strips,

finished with BLO and spray lacquer.

my cheap HF plastic bins fit in it nicely, need to make another to hold the rest i have, maybe when i get more scraps of the right size.

thanks for looking

Nice job. :-)
I suffer from insomnia pretty often too. I can’t work in the shop late though, so I browse woodworking forums. :-p

Looks good and makes the shop more organized especially for those small stuff. Great job!

Have your say...
