    My first room complete-bedroom

    Its a feeling of accomplishment and a sense of pride knowing I built a complete set of furniture(less one night table), something a few years ago Id never dream possible.And its for my son, so its something Ive always wanted to do when I started working with hardwoods.
    I assisted with the floor. He did the back breaking work, I did the cutting.
    I did the molding.
    It feels good.
    (the back of the rear leg took a few dings, and mahogany dings well, so Im going to have to sand them flat and touch them up eventually)
    Overall, my son and a couple of his friends did an incredible job of moving heavy things like the player piano and the entertainment unit I built without marring any of them or harming any walls.

    thankyou, he just needs to add some artwork or color.
    He pushed the dresser closer to the bed for pictures, the bedroom is a bit over 20 feet long.
    I promised him if he takes on a SO in the future, Id add a vanity if they want it, and another long low dresser with mirror.

    Good Job

    Hey Allen, You sure did a really good job. What a sense of accomplishment when you move the furniture into the room for the first time and it makes you want to start planning the next project. Good Job, Joe

    thanx again everyone

    As soon as my last standard comes in I can get the wood moved in the garage and start on the dining table and chairs.
