Waste not want not
Afew days ago a forum friend emailed me seeking ideas on making a portable case to house twelve cotton reels, the dimentions of which he gave me. I emailed him back with an idea. Later in the day, because I had no projects on the go, I decided to make a case as I had described out of MDF so that my friend could see a photo shoot in case he decided on the particular idea. I got as far as shot # 9 at which time I was called to my computer because one of my American forum friends was calling. It ended up a conferance call which lasted until it was feeding time, so the case didn't get finished and I emailed the nine shots to my friend.
Came the next day and I decided to clean the shed and put away the tools from the previous day and picked up the pieces of MDF and whilst deciding whether to keep or dump them, I got one of those sudden flashes of inspiration, why not complete the carcass and make it into a router bit box! So, from shot #10 comes the rest of the project.
