My husband built beautiful wood items from shelves to additions on our home. I never learned his talent. My husband recently passed away and I thought that I would try this project in memory of him, Becky says.

An attendant at her local hardware store helped her hunt down all of the materials from our list, and she consulted friends for advice on slight modification such as how to make the top removable to fit through her doorways.

Thanks for sharing your experience and finished project, Becky!
