It has been another busy week around the Popular Woodworking shop! We sent our December issue to the printer, filmed two episodes of I Can Do That! and worked out the cover for our February issue of the magazine. All-in-all, a great week!
I built a floating shelf with five drawers for my episode of I Can Do That! It was born out of an actual need at the Lyell house. We have a fantastic spot for our coffee bar but thought it would be fun to add a shelf above the area to store cups and other accessories. Well, I shared that idea with David Thiel and Andrew Zoellner and they gave it the green light for an episode of I Can Do That! But that wasn’t before a bit of scope creep. We started talking about hiding drawers with magnets and other silliness before we landed on making the entire face a set of drawers. I chose red oak because the rest of my house is clad in red oak. A fate that I’ve simply accepted and don’t question anymore.
Below is a picture of the space that the floating shelf will occupy and below that is this week’s episode of PopWood Playback.
