I picked up this little lady from Craig’s List for $20.00. Yes, it is well over my $5.00 limit. This is the actual picture from Craig’s list. I got this when I very first started junkin’. Also, I knew I was going to make two projects, and I thought they were both going to be for me. My $5.00 limit is flexible if the purchase is for my own personal use, or for a gift.
I dismantled the wooden parts from the chassis. That in itself was not an easy task. There are many screws holding all of those pieces together. I had a piece of curbed wood that I used for the top. That piece of wood determined the size of this piece. I cut a piece of plywood and routed the edges to match the top. This is the dry fit, making sure that everything was going to work. As it turned out, I decided not to use the piece of bead board that you see in the back in these pictures.
