    I'm not much on building cabinetry but I let a friend talk me into building this for her. Still another piece to be built across the top on the side with the ladder. It will be a wedge piece to fill up to a cathedral ceiling. All built in 3/4" oak ply and edge taped, 1/4" oak ply back, with...

  7. ladder/chair

    This is from an old magazine. Made of cherry. Each project step was a challenge. I made a plywood template for the leg patterns, roughed them out and then gang sanded them so they match. For the two rear leg assemblies a little rail is required, which is angled differently on each end. The...

  10. Ikea Bunk Bed Hack

    We had a convertible crib (made toddler bed) and an Ikea toddler bed in a small-ish room made smaller by the fact that two kids were sharing the same space for toys.
