Rolling Drawing Shelf

Postby boofredlay » Tue Nov 20, 2007 12:26 pm

I did this one for my office. And it has more than what you see here piled on it now. It slides nicely under my drawing table.
I built it out of poplar and used mohogany square plugs. If I remember to bring in a camera to work I will snap a pic and post it back here.
Enjoy.

Hi Eric
Did you actually make that yourself.
Like the clean lines and efficiency of the project.
Mortice and tenon or biscuit joints

I used biscuit joints on the side rails. I screwed the end rails in, hence the plugs. For the shelf itself I just used 1/4" hardboard. I will get some pictures this week.

I tell you what, it was so incredibly easy to make a cutting diagram and materials list by doing the model in SU.

This was the first project I did with square plugs. I don't know if it is the right way to do them but while shaping the plugs I shot a few across the workshop(garage) off of my stationary belt sander. It was kind of like Chris Farley in the movie Tommy Boy when he shot the oil filter across the factory.

nice functional design, Eric. Beats the boxes-in-the-basement set-up that I've got. :)

Regards,

Very nice to.
I can see those chocolate wrappers from Gidons cabinet hiding in the bottom shelf.

I love the square plugs, but where can I buy a square drill bit?

Thanks all for the comments. And Maggy (as you probably guessed) regular drill and square it up with a chisel.

Nope, it is a "one off". I have always wanted to use that term.

Did you sign it. So I take it that it will not show up in the highend furniture stores? :)

I did brand it. I had a custom brand made a few years back.
This is what it looks like, except with Eric Lay in the middle.
