Very Pleasant Diversions
What do you get when winter is approaching and you mix one softhearted woodworker with a stray
cat and her litter of kittens? The answer is a couple of days spent building, what became known
around the down-to-earth woodworking shop as, "Catty Shack."
With room for Mom and kittens, "Catty Shack" will hopefully provide protection from the elements.
The "shack" now rests on the front porch so that it soaks up the warming morning sun and so that its
openings strategically face my windows. I like to watch the kittens play!
While I had plywood out and my router set for perfect-fitting dados, I decided to build a project
that has been on the back burner for a while.
Like everyone I suppose, space in the down-to-earth shop is precious. A little additional
storage without using any additional floor space was the motivation behind this four-drawer storage
unit that sits on top of my drill press base. A short video showing
some of the design considerations is now available on the Highland Woodworking YouTube site.
