    How many times when we are in the workshop all of us need to write down a quick note, measurement or a list of things to buy and we have difficulty of finding a piece of paper or a pen/pencil to write with? I know it happened to me quite a few times. So when I saw this caddy in a magazine (I...

  9. Cherry writing desk

    This is a writing table/writing desk I made two months ago. The design is not mine and was found by a friend who wanted a table/desk (credit to http://www.degaspemfg.com/ for the design).
