Wall mounted laundry room table

Wall mounted laundry room table The table is a mishmash of lumber I had on hand. The apron, vertical supports, and cleats are all made from pine I had left over from other projects(and in the case of the apron I made it from some lumber the previous homeowner left in my garage). The angled supports are simple red oak from Lowes. The tabletop itself is from a huge piece of spalted maple I bought a few months ago. This was the first time I made a panel this size and flattened it. It's definitely not perfect, but I'm feeling pretty good about it.Finished with Osmo Polyx.I secured the top using table buttons to allow the top to move as the wood shrinks and expands. Despite how the one pictured looks from this angle it is in there quite securely. The buttons are from a scrap piece of cherry I found in the shop. You can see the 2 holes on the underside of the apron from when I initially planned on holding the tabletop down with screws. I initially thought screwing it down in the center would be fine, but decided to go with buttons instead.

Dice Towers

Dice TowersThe first dice tower I made is weirdly tall. It was essentially a series of rings that I then built a spiral staircase inside. In later iterations of my design I realized it's easier to build the steps as part of the ring itself, wasting less wood and making assembly much easier.For that first tower I wasn't sure how bit to make the opening in the top, so I tried making an open hatch and it looked terrible. Covered it with felt and called it a day.look avideo of the tower in useWith each iteration of the design it gets a little simpler to make. the later ones have much more visually pleasing proportions, in my opinion.

Another pair of peek a boos

Furnished content.

Another pair of peek a boosA couple of smoothers in my signature style. The walnut one is 8in long, 50 degree bed angle, the other is a 6in long mini smoother with a honey locust body and 52.5 degree bed. Both use Hock blades, 1-3/4 in the 8in and 1-1/2 in the 6in. As before, all metal is stainless and, with the exception of the screws, milled out by me from bar and round stock. Both work extremely well.Some more pics of the finished planes and construction process.Thanks for looking.
