I was told by my family to keep this one standard, so my ideas were crushed again.
They are suppressing my artistic flair and this might be the last piece I listen to anyone on.
Its my woodworking, its my labor, its my wood, its my sweat, its my fingers and splinters and cuts and blood.
But my wife reminded me its going in her den, and I need her to be happy since shes going to be supporting me from now on.
Sycamore, eh. Just using the sycamore for the frames, not thrilled with the grain all over the place.
Hard maple for the top and legs.
Maple plywood interior, 3 center shelves, fixed, and a door on each side with an adjustable shelf in each cabinet. Standard stuff.
The sidewalls and door panels will be beautiful spalted silver maple.
Not sure if Im making raised panels or flat panel. Its like the other units I made, shaker design.
Dont have much time to devote to it until after Im retired, but while Im working phones and taking care of final business stuff, Im cutting wood and making sawdust.
too many different grain patterns in the sycamore, driving me nuts to match up some, and too busy for face frames, but feh. I cut it all up, wasted alot.Attachment 49417
my extremely scientific method of getting an arch for the front lower rail of the face frame. 3 nails in the back, a thin piece of wood, and a sharpie.[ATTACH][ATTACH]Attachment 49420[/ATTACH][/ATTACH]Attachment 49418Attachment 49419
that maple on the back of the work bench is the top of the unit, before I cut it up to joint and plane.
and one more picture. My buddy was over visiting for a minute, noticed a piece of wood and said, hey, you sell this wood to people? I asked why, he said, well, you have a piece marked hold.
I still got ya chestnut larry.Attachment 49421
