Wild Cherry Microwave Stand
« on: February 12, 2016, 10:26:47 PM »
This is a small stand that I just finished for my microwave. It is made from backyard wild cherry, maple, & a bubinga Handle
 

 
It is just a simple to make stand that raises up the microwave to make it easier to see into & adds some drawer space for commonly used wraps & bags. I think that cherry is my favorite wood to work with.
 

 
I also posted a long boring video of the complete build using kreg screws and biscuits for the assembly on youtube.

Nice !!

I think I'll make something like it since my newer microwave was quarter of an inch too big to go on the shelf where the old one went so it's on the counter.

That is a great idea and really nice looking.  Thanks for sharing your video!  The detail you went into was great.  The suggestions and pointers are very helpful for this but also other projects.  You are very good at the video work as well as the woodworking!

thanks  everyone. It was a nice easy project that made my wife happy which keeps fresh bread flowing from the oven. Raising the microwave up makes it much  easier to use for my wife also. I am not very good at making videos yet, but they really help to show people what goes into making a simple project like this from rough cut backyard wood. As you can see I have totally given up on using hand tools in favor of instant results.

21, Good looking , and a great use of space! Did you also build your countertops ?  Rob

Rob Thanks. It really was wasted space that gave my wife a little more storage room. I made the tops last year. There is a old thread on here about them. All my slabs start as tiny peices. :)

Nice job, Maybe I can make one under the toaster. We don't have a Microwave in the house.:D>
Without a microwave all my leftovers would be cold. >:(

Wild Cherry = Prunus avium?

It's a common garden tree here too, but I've never sawn any.  Most of them are open grown, heavy branched sort of ornamentals.

But I've got some down in the back garden that I planted to shelter some native trees that are growing pretty well, about 12 years old, dead straight for maybe 12 ft, and ~12" dbh already. Give them a few more years and they will start to look like sawlogs.  ;) :D

This one was about 20" dbh with 2 good saw logs and the rest went to firewood. I had another that was about 26' dbh that I took down also, but that one was full of ants and hollow in the center. It snapped off while cutting it down and then hit the ground and  shattered. No good lumber in that one. It is a great wood to work with and ages to a beautiful color very quickly. It may sound strange, but I love the smell of the sawdust. It reminnds me of my godfather that used to smoke a cherry flavored tobacco in his pipe when I was  very young. :)

Pretty,, Pretty smart too!  I like it, great space saver, very useful.
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,
