Simple Modern Shelf

There's an odd corner in our hallway and I have no idea what's it for (maybe it's intended for grandfather's clock) so I build a simple display shelf to fill the space.

This shelf is very easy to build, anybody with circular saw and power drill can build it in no time. It don't even need step by step procedures :)

the 10" X 10 1/2" part should be 9 pcs. and not 8

I used pocket hole screws and wood glue to attach the members.

Make three of this.

I used 1/4" plywood for the back of the two connecting shelves. 


 I attached the legs using dowels and corner braces.

Fill the pocket holes, lets dry and sand. Paint.

Arts and craft center

I needed this for so long but I keep putting off building it. Well, finally I finished it and yaay! I can now find my stuff easily (..I should've built it a bit larger).

 I designed it in order to have every place for everything.

 Hutch to organize all my arts and crafts stuff,

 ..side shelf to put my sewing machine and extra fabric.

 Which can be pulled out for additional work space,

..or for the sewing machine.

How to build this arts and crafts table.

This is my original design which I made some changes (not a lot) while building it. Final product measurements upon request.

First, I build my main table.

Cut the back two corner for the hutch frame.

Then attach the hutch frame.

Attach the peg board.
 Build the fabric organizer.


 Build the hutch (one side is open and lower board is shorter so I can easily take my fabric in and out without being tight)

Attach the hutch using screws and corner braces.

 Fill the nail and screw holes, let dry and sand.

Paint (use spray paint for the peg board).

Then build the pull-out table with shelves.

 Attach the casters.

Attach the sliders ( I only put slider at the back side, use another slider on the opposite side, I'm just making sure it's the right slider so I only bought one, the other one later).


..and now I have a place to put all my arts and crafts things.
