I'm building the frame for my wood storage cabinet. Things are going along nicely but I have encountered these challenges:
1. Hand cutting HARD wood dowels is not easy.
2. Using a miter box on the floor makes your back hurt.
3. Adding a new drill bit with the chuck attached to the cord is crazy. Is it legal to remove it? I did.
4. Dividing 9 1/8 x 2. I need to go back to math class.
5. One very old L-square ruler had so much rust on it that I couldn't see the numbers.
6. I have no corner clamps.
7. One level is too short. One is too long.
8. One dog insists on being right in the middle or on top of everything. (Not shown here, but believe me, he was!)
9. Working on a project that is 36 inches long in a doorway that is 30 inches wide...
I decided to turn the original bookcase on its side. I'm building a top frame with 5/8" hardwood square dowels. I will add a small support for the wood in the center on the right. On the left is where the wire shelves will go to hold dowels and strip wood.
I hope to finish this today. I'm calling this a "weekend project."
I wonder how many weekends it will take?
