Jess’s profession has caused her to collect quite a few pieces of equipment, cameras, reflectors, props, etc. Until now they have been stored in our never-been-used-as-a-dining-room dining room. In an effort to make that a functional room again, she asked me to build her a storage unit for the office, and a new project was born.
I had trouble with the original design. I knew she wanted a cubicle format and I wanted simple 3/4 inch dividers with 1.5 inch outer borders, but I couldn’t figure out how to assemble it. In a moment of brilliance, (I won’t tell you where I was when I had it) I made the interior pieces interlocking. It was a simple matter to add the double-layer outer border and facing boards.
With a bunch of putty, caulking, and spray paint (my new best friend) I had a finished project. I then called on my muscle (Becca) to help me move it into the office. As it turned out…I mean, exactly how I planned it, if I had built it 1/4 inch bigger in any dimension, it would not have gone through the hallway into the room. It looks pretty nice, though, huh?
