Project Details

This project was sooooo much fun and so simple that I even dared to let Monster Mash help out! After all, the holidays aren't quite as much fun without a little holiday magic and kid friendly woodworking! Am I right?

You can decorate with ornaments, or perhaps drill out some shallow holes on the ends of each branch for candles... The possibilities are endless!

Instructions

Before beginning to build, always check in on my site to make sure you have the most up to date set of plans, I occasionally update and change the plans to make the building process easier or to allow for less expensive purchasing of materials!

Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save plans, be sure to check in on my site to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans, as I occasionally update things for ease of building or buying. If you are new to building, read through the GETTING STARTED section and other articles found under the BUILD tab in the menu on my site, it has valuable information about how to get started, tools and techniques. If you are unfamiliar with the finishing process, visit my Finishing school for some tips and tricks for painting like a pro and for special finishing practices.

Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages. Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using, or contact me via email or post to the forum before you move ahead. My contact info can be found in the menu of my site.

Step 1

Build your Base: You can use your Kreg Jig set for 1 1/2" stock and your 2 1/2" pocket hole screws and glue. Using your Spade Bit, drill down almost all the way through your base, but not quite all the way. This would be about 1 1/4" down into the board. Tape your Bit as shown here so that you know where you need to stop.

Step 1
Step 2

Add you dowel: If you want this to be collapsible, don't glue. Or you can glue this piece and allow the branches to be movable so you can flatten to store...either way.

Step 2
Step 3

Add the Branches: Using your Spade Bit drill a hole in the center all the way through each branch. Then simply layer in the order outlined below:

Each dimension listed will be for 2 pieces in the listed size unless otherwise noted.

Row 1 and 2: 21"
Row 3 and 4: 24"
Row 5 and 6: 27"
Row 7 and 8: 24"
Row 9 and 10: 21"
Row 10 and 11: 18"
Row 12 and 13: 15"
Row 14 and 15: 12"
Row 15 and 16: 9"
Row 17 and 18: 6"
Row 19: 3" This is the Top and only one of these will be used.

Step 3
Step 4

Add the top: This piece will also drilled only partially,to about 3/4" will work to secure the top piece on your dowel and cap your tree so to speak.

Step 4

Step 1

Build the Base Unit: Use your Kreg Jig set for 3/4" stock and your 1 1/4" pocket hole screws and glue to build the box as shown below. If you aren't using a Kreg Jig you can use 2" wood screws and glue, just be sure to countersink.

Mark out your sink hole and carve out using your jig saw so that you can set your sink into the hole.

Step 1
Step 2

Add the Shelves: The outside shelves are the same size, but all 3 shelves are in different locations. Fasten them in place using your Kreg Jig set for 3/4" stock and your 1 1/4" pocket hole screws and glue. If you aren't using a KJ you can use your 2" wood screws and glue, just be sure to countersink.

Step 2
Step 3

Add the Facing and Footer: Use your 1 1/4" finish nails and glue to tack on the upper and oven knob facing directly to the base unit and from the outside of the sides to attach the footer underneath the bottom board of the base unit.

If you want to give this a truly gourmet look, you might consider painting the Oven Knob Facing in a metallic silver (typically comes in a spray paint can) prior to attaching it (since you will likely have to spray it.

Step 3
Step 4

Construct the Doors: You will build all 3 doors by constructing the face frames for each using your Kreg Jig set for 3/4" stock and your 1 1/4" pocket hole screws and glue.

To construct a face frame you will place your pocket holes in the rails (horizontal pieces) and fasten them to the stiles (vertical). For the Cabinet Doors, you will then glue on the backing from the back side of the face frames and they will sit with 1/2" overhang all the way around the opening for the Upper and Lower Cabinet Doors.

To hang your doors, simply allow for gaps as indicated below and attach using simple hinges for overlay cabinet doors.

The oven door will need the hinges on the bottom (obviously) and the cabinet doors should have the hinges on the outside edge.

Step 4
Step 5

Cut and Carve the Oven Door Facing and Tack onto the Oven Door using glue. You can paint this piece in a silver metallic finish to get a truly gourmet look!

Step 5
Step 6

Add the trim pieces shown below: Use glue and your 1 1/4" finish nails.

Step 6
Step 7

Now it's time to add your fun hardware! You can purchase replacement parts for ovens, stoves, and sinks at your local hardware store and these are perfect for little play parts. I recommend creating a painted section to sit underneath the stove burners and for the facing underneath where the knobs will sit. This will give your piece that fabulous gourmet kitchen look!

Out with the old and in with the new, as they say...

I was planning on hosting Turkey Dinner at my house this year (you can read more about that here), I needed to leave my fall decor out until after Thanksgiving, naturally...

As part of the Holiday Home Organization Blogger Challenge from Apartment Guide, I made it my mission to not only organize but simplify the decorating and storing process!

Bringing out all of these over sized goodies like the 6 1/2 foot twig tree below, didn't leave much room for the Halloween Treats that were still lingering, and so I needed to figure out an easy way to store my decor that wouldn't leave me frustrated next Halloween season.

No more digging through mislabeled boxes that are falling apart after years of use!

Color coded plastic bins is what I decided to do. I feel like next year it will be visually simple to find the appropriate items I want to pull out, if they are stored by color according to the holiday! Fall and Halloween have mutual decor in my house, so one for Fall and one for Halloween in the same color is perfect for now until I build up my holiday decor for this time of year. Then I will most likely need to increase to a third, but for now... light blue is for fall. While I realize it's probably a better color for Easter or Spring, light blue is what they happened to have at my local big box home improvement store. Light blue it is...

I try and layer my bins by using the items themselves to help support and protect other items in the bin with them. Placing the foam jack o lanterns on opposite ends of the bin and laying down an old towel in between left a perfectly protected place to put my precious ceramic skeleton, given to me by my MIL! Of course fragile pieces need to be protected a bit further and so I wrapped him in bubble wrap making sure to separate his limbs since it's most likely that if he breaks it will be because his limbs were clinking together.

Once he was well wrapped he went right in between the foam pumpkins and then the remainder of my spooky decor was added to the mix! My resin skeleton, a lot less breakable was snuggled with towels and my foam tombstones and spider friend went gently on top.

Zip lock freezer bags are your best friend when you are storing small items that don't have their original box or bag. They will help you see what's what while keeping things together and providing a tad bit of protection as well. Of course placing padded items near the top of the bin just as we did on the bottom with the foam pumpkins is definitely smart. Here you can see the stuffed spider and feather boa help add that little extra buffer for the items that are breakable.

Living 

A large clear label on the bins will help you differentiate between seasons and remind you of your color coding genius the following year, just in case you happen to forget.

This play table is on my list to build for Monster Mash's new room! I splurged and purchased the chairs that match this piece since they would be very difficult to duplicate, but the table... the price is simply hard to swallow at almost $400 for a few boards, a couple casters, and thin sheet metal tacked onto the top. I mean seriously...

The Deets

If you prefer to apply a thin sheet of metal over the top boards, you can purchase any type of metal (zinc, steel, copper) sheeting online and at many big box hardware stores.

Step 1

Cut the Legs to Size: Each leg should be 19 1/2" in height.

Step 1
Step 2

Fasten the Aprons in place: Use your Kreg Jig set for 1 1/2" stock and your 2 1/2" pocket hole screws and glue to fasten the aprons to the legs. Set the aprons in 1/4" from the outside edges of the legs.

Step 2
Step 3

Join the Table Top Boards together: Use your Kreg Jig set for 1 1/2" stock and your 2 1/2" pocket hole screws and glue and join the boards as shown.

Step 3
Step 4

Tack on the Top: Use your 2 1/2" finish nails and glue to attach your top panel. Be sure to secure the panel unit to the legs, and aprons all the way around and center the top on the base unit. You should have about 1" overhang all the way around.

Step 4
Step 5

Attach Thin Sheet Metal and Casters: Purchase sheet metal large enough to cover the surface and the edges of the table top panel. This is going to be roughly 47" x 32" after you factor in the 1 1/2" thickness of your table top boards.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, for those of you in the US who celebrate Thanksgiving. For those of you who don't... I hope you had a wonderful Thursday and Friday!

We had quite an eventful evening filled with food, family, and a dog seizure. What a night! To say I hope we don't have a repeat affair anytime soon is an understatement on a few counts, but as for the family and food, it was delectable.

You can see from the images above that I have a living room dining room combo and that it's essentially a long narrow room that hardly fits my majorly over sized furniture. Clearly I care more for my things than I do for creating a more suitable arrangement because I haven't been able or ready to let go of anything since moving into this place. Perhaps one day... but not this day!

And so I began to clear and streamline my very lazy fall decor. I hardly did much more than pile every pumpkin I have in the center of my table and pretend like it looked good! This is what happens when you become to busy to enjoy the things you love, like holiday decorating!

I started to realize this room had basically become a holding cell where all of my accessories come to live when they get booted from the other rooms. Of course now I can't wait to transform this room for a more permanent look, but for now the goal is to make it feastable.

And so I cleared, and cleared some more... and then again more... until only a fraction of the 'stuff' that was in here remained.

My table seats 8 on a good day, and this day was one of those days.

But there were 11 adults, and no matter how much sweet talking I did to my pretty little gal, she could still only seat 8.

The sofa stepped in and helped out by allowing me to pull in another table and a couple of extra chairs and actually made for a fun seating arrangement that gave everyone plenty of room to stretch out during dinner not worrying about rubbing elbows with anyone else.

It all worked out in the end, right up until 'littlest dog in the world' decided to have a seizure and scare everyone to death. Not to worry, my amazing family was on the job and everyone jumped in on the action to try and save him, even though we didn't know what was happening at the time and thought he might have been choking.

I walked upstairs for 30 seconds until my sister ran up to tell me I needed to come down immediately because my dog was croaking! Eek. My father in law attempted to remove anything lodged in his throat, as did my husband, and my wondrous mom even gave him doggie mouth to mouth!

By the time I was downstairs he was breathing and seemed fine. Another clue that he had a seizure. We probably scared him half to death trying to resuscitate him, but I'm glad to have the support of everyone who knows how much of a doggy lover I am. They weren't about to let him croak without putting up a good fight!

I managed to miss the whole event, short lived but scary as it was, and I will tell you that nothing can clear out a house like an animal emergency. Just in case you ever need to end a party quickly you will know what to do. Just whip out your dog and have it roll over and play dead. Great party trick... yikes!

Did any of you have an eventful evening or afternoon? Any other dog seizures out there? For your sake I certainly hope not! eek.

I'm fairly certain most of us assume that a perfectly stored home is a well oiled machine. We believe that those people who live in those homes enjoy organized, less stressful, and more productive lives. Well I couldn't say one way or the other if this is true, because I am not one of those people... yet. I sure would love to find out though, wouldn't you? With the holidays coming and going, the year drawing to a close, and a new year about to begin, I plan to take the bull by the horns and kick things into high gear. I'm determined to find out if the dream matches the reality...

Step 1

Build the Bottom Leg Unit: Fasten the Rails to the Legs using your Kreg Jig set for 1 1/2" stock and your 2 1/2" pocket hole screws and glue.

Step 1
Step 2

Add the Ledges: Using 1 1/4" Screws and glue attach the ledges as shown below. They will be set in 3/4" from the outside edge and should overhang the inside edge by 3/4".

Step 2
Step 3

Construct the Cabinet Box: Use your Kreg Jig set for 3/4" stock and your 1 1/4" pocket hole screws and glue to fasten the back to the sides and bottom, and the sides to the bottom.

You will need to create your pocket holes along the top edges of the back and sides as well so you can attach to the Upper Unit in a later step.

Once you have constructed the 4 sided box, attach it to the ledge by securing with your 1 1/4" screws and glue from underneath on the ledge overhang.

Step 3
Step 4

Construct the Top Unit with Side Panels: Using your Kreg Jig set for 1 1/2" stock and your 2 1/2" pocket hole screws and glue attach the Side Rails to the Upper Legs. Once you have the side Rails connected, attach the Cabinet Top to the Upper Legs leaving a 2 1/4" overhang on the front side and allowing the Cabinet Top to sit flush with the Side Panels on the sides and back. To attach the Cabinet Top you can use either 1 1/4" wood screws and glue or you can attach the Side Panels to the Top using your Kreg Jig set for 3/4" stock and your 1 1/4" pocket hole screws and glue.

Do not attach this to the Cabinet Box yet. Wait until after you secure the shelves and front and back rails.

Step 4
Step 5

Add the Shelves: Fasten the Shelf to the Front and Back Rails using your Kreg Jig Set for 3/4" stock and your 1 1/4" pocket hole screws and glue. Then attach the Shelf Units to the Side Panels using your Kreg Jig set for 1 1/2" stock and your 2 1/2" pocket hole screws and glue.

Once you attach these, you can flip the Upper Unit over and attach it to the Cabinet Box using your Kreg Jig set for 3/4" stock with pocket holes placed in the Cabinet Box Back and Sides, and your 1 1/4" pocket holes screws and glue.

Step 5
Step 6

Hang your Door: you can use any hinge you like and feel comfortable with that is for an overlay door.
