final budget analysis
Not exactly attractive
  • Scope: Build a shelf unit for storing stuff
  • Goal: Declutter the desktops and kitchen table.
    • Stop working at the kitchen table.
  • Budget: $100
  • Design Guidelines:
    • 12″ deep, 48″ wide, 48″ high, should be able to hold a monitor, printer, and have some covered storage. Try to make it attractive.
  • Tool List: Circular Saw, Jig Saw, drill, clamps, hammer.
  • Recommendations:
    1. use 1/2 tenon joints or add blocks between the uprights.
    2. Consider adjustable drilled peg design for shelf supports.
    3. Add sides, consider adding door to right side.
    4. If the stick is that twisted do not use it.
    5. The cost guy said “THOSE SHELF SUPPORTS CAN BE REPLACED WITH SWIVEL WOODEN STILES!”

why on earth would you post this?

It’s horrible.

I now have a place to that is basically computer free to do non computer design work, that is not the kitchen table. <inhales> and other people may find value in this concept.

Really, use any wood you want, I admire fine wood worked furniture, this is not that. This is a cabinet that can be used until it finds a resting spot in the garage.
