Hold My Beer

Problem: the nice fireslate, birch and steel end table you built years ago is now covered in children’s books, leaving no place to put your beer.

Solution: build a beer shelf for your couch.

I used 12 mm phenolic-faced plywood. It’s not the quality stuff from Finland (Koskisen), but I don’t have a local dealer for it so I’m stuck with what I can easily mail-order. Phenolic plywood is waterproof and looks amazing. I would probably build everything with it if I could.

This is one of the few woodworking projects I have designed completely in CAD (Fusion360) and constructed with my Shaper Origin CNC router (which is amazing).

    I haven’t hard of Phenolic plywood but it looks cool. I got some baltic birch recently and it’s pretty nice. I’m going to try to steam bend it.
