Outdoor furniture

Yesterday's task: build a container for the grill accessories. There's nothing worse than a soggy cardboard box full of charcoal and tools scattered all over the veranda.

I designed and built a simple table with a shelf and a door panel that's hinged along the bottom. The charcoal, blowtorch and other things are hidden behind the door. The upper shelves can be used for trays of food.

Working on this brought back lots of memories of doing woodwork with my father. He had a little shop in the basement and from the time I was 12 or so, I had my own tools. We built bookshelves, mainly, and also my childhood desk which was 8 feet long and 12 feet high. My bedroom had high ceilings and an excessive quantity of books!
