With all the work going on at the house, it’s a little difficult to get any woodworking done. My outside shop is filled with the new kitchen appliances and my table saw is trapped between the new stove and the new sink. I did manage to get one small project done – a soffit box for the wiring. We had a sub-panel installed in the laundry room and the wires coming out of the box needed to be covered. My electrician tells me that by the building code the wires need to be protected by either steel or 1.5 inches of wood. We decided the best plan was to build a frame out of 2x4s and cover it with drywall. It had to be done in time for the rough inspection so I went ahead and pulled my chop saw and pocket hole jig out of the shop and built this:
I did mange to get some time to work on the cross and cut out 2 more church mice, but not enough to take a picture of. There is more of the soffit box but the space it is in is so small that I couldn’t get a good picture of the whole thing but I think you get the idea.
If you need me – I’ll be in the shop.
