I drew my son this year and he wanted something for his garage to roll his pet food containers under. My family will get together January 8th to exchange gifts. This is what I came up with, it’s Maple.

thanks,
Bryan

I appreciate all of your nice comments. Thank you.
I know it too nice for a garage environment but when he told me what he wanted I couldn’t just give him something made with lumber, I have to use hardwood for my Christmas gift.
I’d been watching videos on loose mortise jigs and built a jig for this project. I really enjoy building things
and figuring out how to repair my mistakes and I made a fair share of them. I do find with the more experience it’s easier to find a way out of jam.

Happy New year from Indepedence Missouri.

Wow Flip top plus it slides out. It looks great!

Rick, yeah it’s kind of secret drawer, (good pickup you). I’ll surprise him with it, looks like a top but turns out it’s both a top and a lid. He’ll be able to mount shelves above it if he likes and still be able to pull it out as a work surface or open it. I had the idea and wanted to see if I could pull it off. I’m happy with it but we’ll see what he thinks.

Nice job. How about sharing your mortise jig with the group. I have a very simple jig that has its origins at Santa Fe Community College and it is fun to see how others approached this problem.

bfblack, sure.
This is basically a jig made by watching a Woodsmith video plus other videos on YouTube. I combined features from other videos that I liked.
