As the kitchen is the main entrance into our house, the kitchen floor is permanently scattered with shoes. Drives me nuts!
So himself said he would build a shelf for our shoes.
Not that it would occur to him to hammer together some bits of MDF and be done with it.
Why use MDF when you can use maple and walnut? Why build something utilitarian when you can make something beautiful.
And now the shoes are tidy, I'm happy and he got to play with wood. The wonderful thing about himself taking up woodwork is he finally, fully understands my fabric obsession. It's a win win situation for me.
