About This Project

My favorite thing this Christmas was making handmade gifts. Mom's were the most fun. :) The first is the Cube dresser, using the plan from 2x4 console cubby shelf (turned upright), with wheels. Next are 2 recliner side tables, made from the 5 board bench plan, with added shelf at the bottom for books and magazines. The last is the 'trinket box' - which isn't really from a plan, just made up with 1x4 and 1x6 boards. We finished these to match her existing furniture, which we built for her earlier this year. Mom loved her gifts! Thanks Ana!
