    Looks good. I wish there were more "instructing", & specifics,that you could have included, that, i think would make for s more complete Instructables" entry. For example, things like the height/layout lines of your dadoes, or maybe you listing the tools & hardware that was used during your building process. Perhaps, even listing the pros and cons of the final product, or what worked well & what didnt, or along the same lines, what you might do differently, if making another one. Maybe some things to consider (or maybe not). Thanks for sharing...

    this looks great. I have a very small space (one car garage) and am trying to figure out some options for the occasion scraps and cutoffs. For example that 4'x4' plywood half sheet left over from ....? ;-)

    so, how big is your base dimensions?
