Build a Box for Your Accessories

Build this box to organize and store your daily accessories.

| December 2012/January 2013

I’ve spent my life hunting for my car keys, wallet, cell phone and beach tokens — but glasses top the list. It’s one of life’s oxymorons — how do you find your glasses if you can’t see without your glasses? If necessity is the mother of invention, then “exasperation” must be the father. One day, after a long safari hunt for my specs, I found them on top of the refrigerator. How did they get up there?

I decided to build a special wooden chest for my glasses and other essentials — nothing elaborate — just something that wouldn’t “disappear” in the room. My essentials box is just 9 inches by 12 inches by 3 inches high, but holds all of the basic “tools” of my daily life.

I used the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha. Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)
