Shoe rack for to stick shoes in.
It works.
Made out of a single sheet of plywood, a lot of glue, and some wood stain.

Next up, pickguard for my fretless bass, made of flamed maple.


Came out purty good if I do say so myself!
It's still soaking up oil like crazy, this was a test fit to see how it looks. Probably needs another 3-5 coats of tung oil.

That's all for now. More hopefully pretty soon!

Thanks!
Looks even better in person, as you can see the "flame" in the maple shifting as your head moves. it's fun. ^_^`

oooooooh. Now I can't wait to see it. I'm still just in awe that you actually *made* it. You made a bass!! That's so cool!

no no, just the pickguard of this one. The body came pre-finished, and the neck is off my old blueish fretless.

next up is a bass I'm doing the whole body of (photo of the body post-staining is up on my gallery and adding an existing neck.

After that, I'll actually build a full bass.
Baby steps. ^_^

made, assembled... symantics! You did more than I could do, and before you started on it was not a musical instrument, and now it is. I stand by my assertion!

Oh wait, ignore me. I'm being stupid. I thought this was the bass that had been sitting in pieces in my basement.... not the one you already own and play on. Nevermind. Still cool though!

Actually, now I'm confused all over again.... was there assembly required?

::shrug:: You're still cool, regardless of what state the bass was in before you started. =)

They's useful, that's for sure.
I'm still trying to figure out a good solution for holding lots of 12oz beer bottles in a small footprint.

I realized that I didn't have nearly enough clamps to glue it up properly, so I had to work in stages, strategically plotting which parts to do based on my limited supply of clamps. ^_^

yeah, we used to use milkcrates, then moved up to a crappy wood shelf that we found on the sidewalk, and I figured it was time for something that would hold boots on the bottom, sandals on the top, and normal shoes in the middle; would fit the space; and wouldn't look like ass.
and voila!

Jeez, if these are your baby steps, I think I'm going to drool incoherently when you get around to doing your pet projects.
