A nice friend of mine requested I make a special project for him, which was a set of escutcheons for his garden fence project. The escutcheons are to be used to cover a hose bib pipe to make it look a bit more attractive than just a hole in the side of the fence. The escutcheons are made from pressure treated pine cut to size, and then chamfered, drilled, and I then chamfered the screw holes for a #8 screw.


Tool Tote Project

From the pages of Shopnotes issue number 91, I built the tool tote. It is made from 1/4″ birch plywood and required only 1 2′ x 4′ sheet to do the project. I think the most tedious part is laying out all the holes and slots for the tabs to fit in. The whole tote is assembled without glue, and fits together like a nifty puzzle. I’m going to half the dimensions for all the parts and make one kid-sized for my son.
