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" 馃槈

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. :wink:

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.

You did one heck of a job on that book shelf. That is one that could go in the living room Good On You.

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!!! 馃檪

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.

Great idea, Joe. The finish looks good too. What did you use on that?

But they graciously offer to pay for the wood. Usually.

Nice way to spruce up your shelf, Joe.
Joe that looks great and she will probably be back asking for more. Got to be real careful or you won't have time to play with your Bronze and Granite!

Really Jim?? You and my wife have strange taste in colors. She bought it for some tomato stakes I made for her and loves it so I keep putting it on most of her projects but it's a little too orange for me. I guess it goes ok with the bricks. 馃檪

Great job, and a very creative solution.

If she thought she was going to get a basic set of shelves, she must have been overwhelmed with that project. First class job.
Nice work but you set a bad precedent. You should have made the thing and set it aside for 2-3 weeks. Now your wife will think that projects just appear and magically happen. You have to make them anticipate the outcome.

Honey do or Honey dont is the difference between a happy wife or a happy husband. If mamma aint happy aint nobody happy.
