New widget - night time place for books, glasses, remote control

Thanks to Lori!
Added custom cubbies to tape underneath the cabinets. Radius on the corners for less damaging head whacks at night.

Inside dimensions on this version are 12 x 6 x 4 inches high.

tape type

Thomas,

I use 3M VHB tapes exclusively. Spendy at about $1 a foot, but nothing beats them........

It certainly does, I use the industrial grades that are used to tape the sides on those 40 ft long semi truck trailers together, which is why very few have a zillion rivets on their sides anymore.

Still about a buck per foot and I have to buy 200 foot rolls!

Maybe we'll have to make a group buy and every one can have 10 feet.

Looks like "Sintra" (PVC) sheet fabbed with heat bender for the radiused corners and glued with PVC pipe dope or similar cement, Tom, BICBW. Simplest of thermoforming operations.
