Thread: Been slowly getting back after my accident...

  1. #1

    Been slowly getting back after my accident...

    Finally finished up a few items for the LOML...

    Lingerie dresser.....Poplar and pine...2-tone stain to carry the same theme across the bedroom....sorry about the open drawer picture......don't look at my wife's unmentionables

    Then...the matching nightstands with a travertine top...2 of them....again, the same as above in terms of wood and finish...(wish I went semi-gloss though)

    And Finally the king Size bed....details on the rails to match some antiques I saw.

    Next will be 2 matching desks, to match the rest of this furniture. We have the room so my wife can work at home, and I can play on my 'puter at the same time....after that...a full size dresser....and then...on to the dining room. Already have to china cabinet designed...should be a challenge though.

    Nice work all around, Dom. Glad to see you're getting back into the swing of things after the accident. Based on your upcoming plans, it looks like you're gonna be full steam ahead now.

    Nice work Dom. I like the travertine tops, what a great idea. I've got to make some bedroom furniture next so adding that to my notes...thanks!

    Dang gone man, without being banged up, do you turn out a whole house of furniture in a month??????
    You do the carving on the headboard also??
    That is a beautiful set! Working like that, you would sleep sound on the floor!

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Thanks for the compliments guys. I think the hardest part of the recovery is learning new tricks. Simple things like trying to pick up a dropped screw with your thumb and pinky.

    Well what do they say?...Necessity is the mother of invention.

    Thanks again....

    And also to Cynthia for the very kind PM's
