Below are photos of a Custom Advent Calendar ordered by an awesome customer! She contacted me with hopes of starting the yearly Advent tradition with her children and I was super excited to learn and build one of these complex projects.
This project was built using various thicknesses of Baltic Birch plywood ranging from 1/2" to 1/8" thick. It took awhile to dial in the key cuts for each box but it worked really well. I adapted plans from the wood whisperer's original design to meet the customer's request for 25 individual drawers instead of doors for each day counting down to Christmas.
I really, REALLY, like the way the drawers turned out. It took a little effort to get the measurements just right and gluing each individual box went quicker than expected using Cyanoacrelate glue and activator. Without that glue, these boxes definitely would not have worked out as well as they did!
Sanding took a little while but this project came together really well and I'm excited to build different versions of these for customers in anticipation for next Christmas. I have received a few orders already do you'll definitely see more of this project in 2016. I'm still taking other custom orders for next year and have a few really awesome projects lined up for 2016!!
Merry Christmas everyone and Happy New Year from my family to yours!! There is much more to come... Stay frosted..
