Chair Garage Rebuild
Our new chairs were a terribly tight fit in the chair garage and would often nudge the door open on the road. I removed the garage and brought it home to my workshop to make the fit better. When I first modified the garage, I did it at the storage yard and the workmanship was not the best. This time, it is a little nicer.
The garage was already tapered to better fit beside my recliner. I added a 4" wide piece of oak to the front end with pocket screws and relocated the old front wall to the new piece. I then band sawed a plastic drawer to fit into the top. This is about 4" deep and is storage for pencils, pens, tire gauge, and similar small objects. Last, I had the old top from the bedside table with matching laminate. I cut this into a trapezoid to fit and then cut out an opening to access the drawer which is piano-hinged.
I like the result. It is a great place to set a drink when relaxing and the laminate insures no water damage..
