Parts organizer rebuild A week ago my plastic small parts organizer was found smashed to bits on my shop floor. After years of overloading the draws the back finally gave out.After looking at the items at HD I realized that my best choice was to keep the draws and rebuild the cabinet to mount on my wall. I used baltic birch 1/2 inch ply for the sides and back and ran some dados with the router. I added a larger top shelf and base.I'm happy with the results as I know it's not falling off the wall again. Additionally, I got rid of half of my stuff since I threw out anything I hadn't used in 5 years.

Model waka ama (outrigger canoe) bath toy7yo wanted to make a bath toy. That's how this started, and it got a bit out of hand :-)I didn't want to get a plastic thing, so when she wanted a waka ama model like the one from the movie Moana, I thought it would be a good chance for us to do some woodwork together.We used a couple of scrap pieces of poplar, some tagasaste branches from our property, and lashed them together with wharariki (NZ mountain flax) leaves, which are tough and fibrous. 7yo did most of the gouging and spokeshaving herself.We wove the sail from wharariki leaves. We painted it with waterproof paint and the sail has a red koru (spiral) on it, painted by her. She loves the fact that it floats.Poplar and wharariki, with hand tools.
