    My best client

    Trying to knock out a few pieces for my daughter. She will be moving to Ohio to go to grad school and has got an apartment. She needs a desk and tv stand so ......Yahoo!!!!!!!...... I get to make something for somebody really special. She drew me a picture of the desk she wanted, and gave me a "whatever you think would work best", traditional, on the tv stand. Here is an inprocess of the tv stand.

    Looks like a fun project...and that it's for family is an extra bonus. The pay may not be monetary, but it's as good as gold.

    She sure seems demanding, though. You made her a perfectly good TV stand years ago.

    Thanks Vaughn, you know about doing for the one you love.
    Her first TV stand ( that you show reference to) is evidence that what you shared with me about "PIXresizer" long ago has indeed allowed me to post photos of the correct size here in the Family. Once more, Thank you Vaughn for your help, clarity, and understanding.

    Hi Robert.

    Good work! these comissions are the most loved ones.

    Jus a couple of questions, do you plan to put sliding doors to cover the TV when not in use?

    What are those lines on the sides, just grooves or some sort of inlay? I can't tell from the picture and I like the effect very much.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Could easily turn out to be your 'most rewarding' project of the year!

    Jus a couple of questions, do you plan to put sliding doors to cover the TV when not in use? ( Not exactly, I am not much of a sliding door kind of guy. What you see may be a bit deceiving. The opening above the drawers will be the space for the VCR/DVD/Cable box and the TV will set on top of the cabinet. The cabinet is about 34" tall. S )

    What are those lines on the sides, just grooves or some sort of inlay? I can't tell from the picture and I like the effect very much. ( Thanks Tony, as you can tell I like it too. That center part of the end panel was made with a "three bead cutter" on the table saw with repetetive passes in 1" increments. The cutter heads shown here

    have inner changeable knife profiles.
    Attachment 11795 This shows the three bead cutter on the table saw and next shown are results seen on a real client's upper cabinet
    Attachment 11796Attachment 11797 Hopefully you can get hold of the head and some inner changeable cutter heads. I will be glad to walk through it with you. S )

She wants somewhat traditonal, so I am constrained from getting too crazy with it. Oh Yeah, I had some ideas,,,,,, but you need to build what the sweet client wants, not what you think they want cause you want to build it! S )

    Today was top coat day and this was the result.

    That is sweet! Now, you're going to have to deliver it as well and then you'll see that there is extra space in the apartment and so..............

    Hi Jay, nice to hear from you. Hope your trip is going as well as it sounds. Trying to keep up with your travels but it is hard, you are elusive.


    Deliver yes, to Ohio, but too far to try to outfit the whole place. Have a desk top she wanted too, to her specs. It is nice to be able to help out when possible..
    Driving a 14' u haul, a bench seat, with my daughter and X wife from Texas to Ohio. Will fly back when done unloading.

    Hey Steve,
    You Know so well,
    the right smile, that little touch, a kind thank you from the eyes, makes the labor we do so eagerly.......... so well worth while, for the ones we love. ..................For those we don't necessarily love, that we call clients.......... Don't smile at me...Don't touch me, don't thank me with your eyes... just """SHOW ME THE MONEY""" ..."cuba gooding....from the movie 'Jerry McGuire'..
