Here’s a quick one off I made for my wife to declutter the kitchen counter a bit.
She and my daughter drink coffee and tea. I drink Diet Coke. For some reason I don’t understand, they have boxes and boxes of tea and coffee. Apparently one flavor isn’t enough. So boxes of the stuff are everywhere. They’re spilling out of the cabinets and stacking up on the counter. Some order is in order
Enter the teabag house. Snap together and drop a box in and a little order ensues. They want a teabag they can pull it out of the bottom until it’s empty and then replace the box.
Start with this:
All cuts except for the seeds (is that what the little bits on a strawberry are?) on the strawberries are engraved. Only 6 minutes to cut it out of plywood.
Another 10 minutes to glue it together (including cure time) and it’s ready for a test run.
Now time to tighten up the design file to better account for the kerf and the real thickness of my material (going to use Proofgrade this time). Note to self, remember to mic the material - all 1/8" isn’t Also I think I’ll drop in a couple of alternate designs with flowers or birds (both of which the ladies I serve are fans of) so it’s not just 3 of the same on the counter. I like what @Jules did with her battery buildings and think a little variety in the fronts and materials will provide a similar townhouse row look. It will certainly give the other couple of boxes someplace to live other than scattered on the counter. A little order is on its way.
No idea what to do about the ones that fall on my head when I open the cabinet. For now I just don’t go in that one. I think they may be hiding good snacks in there though.
