The main bathroom in our home was recently remodeled. In the end the project turned out nice; not without a good deal of aggravation stemming from our contractor. A few odds and ends remain to be straightened out then we can finally, after more than four months, put the process behind us.
We’re slowly acclimating to the new decor and layout as we begin to use the space on a regular basis. The first few days I was placing my bar of soap directly on the tile ledge of the shower niche. My mind began browsing the inventory of our home for something that could be used to hold the soap. Then it dawned on me, I can make something.
As usual, the original plan was something ambitious and complicated. I took some time, gave it some thought and simmered the project down to something simple. I grabbed some poplar bits out from the scrap pile and piece of red oak dowel. After a little sawing, drilling, sanding and gluing I had myself a soap tray for the shower. It’s doing its job nicely and the more I look at it the more I like it.
