I Heart "The Perfect Caddy"!

Sunday was another day of construction at the Squash House! Christmas before last, Mr. Squash gave me the Hinterberg Perfect Caddy. I decided to wait to put it together until our move here to the Squash House. We were further delayed waiting for warmer weather so we could first put a coat of Minwax on it in the garage where the fumes wouldn't make us loopy! Saturday Mr. Squash spent the day doing just that!

We let the Minwax dry overnight and yesterday I went to work with my trusty drill! Here is just some of it as I was organizing the pieces.

The first drawer went together really well! Hinterberg's directions are impeccable! The wood for the most part is solid oak, all the holes are pre-drilled and they even included a drill bit for the allen wrench! I was just tickled to see that I didn't need to use one of those tiny allen wrenches that destroy my fingers! From there on out everything went together really well!
Here is the base all on to the top section and the side bins. I did have a bit of a mishap...I first assembled the base piece on the top - only because I didn't pay close enough attention to the instructions! Thank goodness I figured it out after screwing in only one of the wheels!
And here is the finished Perfect Caddy!! It still needs to off-gas from the Minwax a bit more, so we have it in the dining room for another day or two before it goes to my studio.
This is one of the side views of the bins - two small on top and one extra large bin on the bottom. The other side has two medium bins. It also has locking casters on the bottom so you can either slide it around to meet your needs or park it in place!

Now I have all the components to finish my workspace. I'll be filling up the Perfect Caddy on Wedesday, then next post I'll reveal my Squash House studio!

Clever. I've never seen such a caddy. Someone really put thought into it. Great that is has casters and side "pockets". You could have a segment on your blog called Tool Time with Candace.

Darlene said...

Oh, Candace I'd forgotten that you had a Perfect Caddy waiting to go in the new studio - it's beautiful. I can't wait to see it filled to suit your needs. Someday I will order a Perfect Caddy for me. :-)

Barb said...

That is the perfect caddy, I am coveting your caddy...

Kim said...

Carpenter Candace is at it again! I have a plastic bin or drawers type thing that is this idea, but not nearly as pretty! Waiting patiently for the studio reveal...

Karen said...

Looks like a really sturdy caddy. Looks like a fine piece of furniture and so useful. I have a plastic one on wheels that I could push around. Not nearly so nice as yours.

Libby said...

Oh, I think I *heart* it, too! Looks great!

Quilt Hollow said...

I don't think I'd ever seen this type of caddy before. Looks that wood!! Let me see....plastic from Wal-Mart or your Caddy? Duh!!! Why ask!!

Ulla said...

I'm always learning new things from quilt blogs! Until now a 'caddy' for me was the guy on Eurosport golf who didn't get to hit the ball but carried everything for the other guy. I can see the connection here, and your caddy will never complain about long hours. Carpenter Candace sounds good!

Sherri said...

I've seen pictures of the Hinterburg Caddy and wondered about it...thanks for the review! Can't wait to see your studio reveal!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

That is fabulous Candance. It goes on my wish list.
Can't wait to see the big reveal!

Linda said...

Well you are multi-talented aren't you? Like Stephanie I don't think I've seen one before. Very nice indeed.

Sharon said...

This is a great looking caddy, give us a "user" update once you start filling it up, I can't wait to see the reveal of your studio!

onlymehere said...

I've been drooling over these for quite some time. I like the fact you can customize them to your own needs. You did a great job on it! I'm sure it will be a wonderful valuable piece to your studio.

Mary said...

You have impressed us all, Candace, with your carpentry skills. What's next??

AnnieO said...

Those caddies are very enticing with their beautiful Oak grain and lots of drawers. It looks great! Can't wait to see the finished Squash House Sewing Studio.

pratima said...

It will be so handy in your studio. So convenient to have wheels too. Can't wait to see your lovely Studio :D

Jackie said...

Look at you building things again! This looks like a wonderful caddy and I can't wait for the studio pics that I've been waiting for!

Anonymous said...

What a wonderful addition for your studio...Love that word! I think I would really love one of those..and besides it was a nice bonding kind of experience. Right?
Now do we get to see inside each and every drawer and bin when it is complete with your wonderful treasures? Louise

I was wondering when you were going to show us your studio. I remember when you mentioned you had gotten one of those caddies. Looks great. One day I would like to have one of those.
