How about a computer & TV armoire in one? I have been looking around the net for one that could accommodate laptop, speakers, scanner and printer, as well as TV and DVD player in just one cabinet.

How about a wooden combination trash/recycling can? A foot pedal to open it and two separate plastic cans inside for the trash and recycling. Thanks

We have searched ****** for plans for a Baby crib with no luck. It would be awesome to see what TOH would create for a Baby crib that could easily be modified for different styles!

Lots of old homes have fireplaces or wood stoves and many of us are trying to use them to be environmentally and fiscally responsible. How about building a wood box that looks nice in my old house, is easy to make (I'm really new at this!) and is super handy?

I would love to learn how to build a murphy bed platform. Specifically one that could be 'hidden' behind bifold closet doors so that the most useless room in most houses(guest room) could be multipurposed.
Thanks

My husband and I are remodeling and redecorating a 1899 Federalist/Victorian. We have 2 projects going at present: a 2nd bathroom remodel (his) and a kitchen upgrade (hers).
We need plans for linen storage for the bath. A simple cabinet would be wonderful! Not too deep of shelves, doors or shutters on the bottom for cleaning supplies, with open shelves at the top for ease of accessibility.
Would love to hear from you.

I'm a new member. I have a table I'd like to recast -- specifically keep the nice old marble top and apron but remove and update the base so it can be used as a small mobile kitchen "island-ette."

I own the table, willing to donate and do the repainting post-carpentry. The current elongated spider base has a center post (plus for legs) that suggests a possible leg style.

Also willing to cannibalize the carved and incised parts of the base if necessary. Attie.
