    • This is a great solution! It looks better with the wood than it probably ever did new!

    • I have a broken glass table too -exactly like yours Do you have instructions to make this new table top?
      By Jinman, on May 23, 2017
      • It was pretty straightforward. Here's the steps that worked for me. I placed the round table frame upside down on a piece of cardboard and traced an outline with a pencil. I then cut the cardboard, slightly undercutting the outline. This provided a cardboard template that was the same size as the inside of the frame. I placed the composite deck boards face down and clamped them together temporarily with pipe clamps. I then traced an outline on the back side of the board using the cardboard circle. Once I had an outline, I marked the locations of the pocket holes. Outlining the circle before marking the pocket holes allowed me to make sure I wouldn't have any pocket holes / screws on the cut line. I secured the bottom side of the boards with pocket holes using my Kreg jig. I used Tightbond III glue between the boards as I secured them together with pocket screws. I wiped off excess glue and let it dry overnight. I used a jigsaw to cut the table as outlined and then popped the new top into the circular frame / table legs. Although it fit perfectly, I added a bead of silicone along the bottom side at the edge of the table and frame. Good luck with your project.

    • This is amazing, this looks so much better than those glass tabletops. Stronger too

      • Thanks much. It was nice to make something functional again when my friend was about to throw it away.

    • I would love to have these beauties. Yes, they make great pedestals for an outdoor wedding or place near the altar in church. I also could see them as legs for a desk or table. The possibilities are endless.
      By SisterSister, on April 6, 2017
      • Thanks. They were real easy to make, the only issue I had was that my son, and future daughter in law, live out of town so I wasn't able to get their input before final assembly. I figure I can always shorten them if needed.

    • Beautiful work! The Groom-To-Be will love these. Your stain looks great- very rich.

    • Terrific and simple storage solution! It's amazing how much space there really can be in a garage if you just know how to use it.
      By RYOBI Nation, on March 24, 2017
      • Thanks. Yeah, getting this stuff off the floor freed up a lot of space and made them easy to find.

    • I love using the door also. This looks like a project for my husband. He owes me lol.
      By TheBusDriver, on March 17, 2017
      • Thanks. We added the door racks afterwards and they added a lot of extra storage. The Shanty 2 Chic girls have great plans that are real easy to customize.
        By grover959, on March 17, 2017

    • Love that project especially the door, great idea!

    • Great work! These pieces are timeless- you're sure to get many years of use out of these. Nicely done!
      By RYOBI Nation, on March 8, 2017
      • Thanks much.

    • Really like the idea for the power cord notches
      By TARZANTHEJEDI, on March 8, 2017
      • Thanks, they work well to keep the cords from falling behind the unit when disconnected. I didn't have it in the picture but we have a slim USB charger on the back of each unit (attached with Velcro tape) so that each nightstand has 5 charging ports in easy reach, while concealed in the back.

    • Is there detail plans for this?.... would love to see one so that I could make one to surprise my wife
      By Rasicalreis, on March 5, 2017
      • Steve Ramsey has a great tutorial on his woodworking for mere mortals site. He offers really good tips and shows three generations of drawer organizers he made, and how he improved each one. It was very straightforward to make; once you make the outside frame you make and customize the divider slats. You have to be careful with the Dado cuts but once you have that down, it's easy to assemble. Good Luck.
        By grover959, on March 27, 2017

    • This is fantastic. I hate the wasted space that generic drawer dividers create. I also like the curve you cut in to make it easier to grab utensils.
      By TARZANTHEJEDI, on March 5, 2017
      • Thanks. We just refinished the outside of the cabinets and wanted to provide better organization for the inside.
        By grover959, on March 6, 2017

    • This is beautiful! The wood dividers look smaller than 3/4". Are they from a smaller piece of wood?
      By homefor3nc_126334, on July 22, 2017
      • I ripped a 3/4" maple board into two strips. The thick strip is 3/8" and used for the outside frame, the remaining (thin) strip is about 1/4" and used for the inside dividers. Here's a link to our blog that highlights steps in greater detail. http://www.makingitours.com/silverware-drawer-organizer/ It was real easy to make and has held up well over time. Good luck with your project.

      By RYOBI Nation, on February 8, 2017

    • My teenage son has taken interest in RYOBI Nation projects as well and is busy brainstorming future projects for us.
      By grover959, on February 8, 2017

    • I really like the dual phone and tablet design. Did you bevel the edges as well?
      By TARZANTHEJEDI, on March 4, 2017
      • Thanks. Yeah, I used my router and a roundover bit to slightly bevel the edges on a few of them.
