This weekend I was in the shop "Playing with the CNC" and my wife said "I could really use a book shelf to sit plants and stuff on downstairs." She said don't use good wood because it's just gonna get water and dirt on it so I grabbed a sheet of 3/4" plywood and started cutting but before screwing it together, I thought I bet I can cnc something on this thing.....
She's pretty impressed and I got to finish "Playing with the CNC" 😉

That looks really nice, Joe, and way better than just plain ol' plywood with no cutouts! And you probably picked up some husband points along the way. They won't last but at least you got them.

WTG! Nice plant shelf and great idea of the cutouts. Move over, IKEA!

Very nice work and your wife should be very proud of you!

Do you have this problem? Every time make something that draws a lot of attention, there is always a family member, friend or neighbor that asks if you could make one for them.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Thanks guys, it's a long way from fine furniture but it's nice to be able to add some cnc work into stuff around the house. Now back to the Bronze and Granite!!! 🙂

And that's the reason I read this forum when my wife is busy elsewhere. I don't need her seeing this kind of simple, plain, shelf unit for her plants. What would I have to do if she wants a fancy one then?

Great job Joe and I can't wait to see some of your fancy stuff.
