ID:	73477 .. now just have to line the drawers and apply some poly and will be good to go. Total time, didn't watch real close but in the range of 5 hours including glue drying time. Thanks for looking.

    Very well done. Be careful, I've heard those things can become addictive.

    Very, very nice indeed. And as Glenn said, once your bandsaw is tuned up and a sharp blade on it, they are addictive.

    I agree with Tom. That is something I've wanted to try but just haven't yet. Kept thinking I needed a solid chunk of wood. Never thought about gluing up individual boards. HMMMMM.....Jim.
