  1. Shaker Style Towel Rack with Cleats

    My wife finished up wallpapering the cabana bath with some charts she had from her days working on yachts, and we collaborated on this towel rack (she showed me a picture, I made it, she painted it, I hung it). I wanted to make it from poplar but my closets Home Depot didn't have any (weird) so...

I turned...

  7. Towel Rack

    One of the guys I work with wanted me to fix him a towel rack for his camper. He had one that had broken and asked if I could fix it. I just made him a new one. He did buy me lunch for a couple of weeks for it. Nothing fancy, but something else for me to help learn on.
