    Lovely - especially the textures and how they work together.
    So do I type something witty here?

    Not only do you know how to use the tools, you produce great results with them, too. That's the difference between a technician and a craftsman.

    Just doodling...yeah well you suck Dave.

    (Just kidding...you know you do great work with Sketchup that most of us are jealous of)

    I wish I could do something with Sketch-up but I'm too mechanically drafting inclined I guess. It sure would be nice to doodle up some hand plane designs though and noodle over them with the likes of Alan DuBoff and Paul Hubbman.
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Hi Dave ,
    Very nicely done. Are you using the mirror tool to bookmatch the stiles?
    I agree with Vaughn, you are a craftsman with your tools.

    Thank you all.

    Bubba, yep, I used the mirror thing to make the parts and by default, the wood textures get mirrored, too. Makes for easy bookmatching.

    You Da Man Ddave
    Bubba

    Your ability to add the color and the texture of these different woods is very impressive, coupled with your ability to constuct these pieces as you do lend themselves to education at a school of higher learning!

    Thank you sir. You flatter me greatly.

    While working on a rendering of this cabinet I came up with a question. does anyone ever start with door rail stock that is thick enough to resaw so the rails and stiles would be bookmatched across the cabinet? Would that take the bookmatching thing too far?

    I don't think you can take book matching too far. If there wasn't such a premium on thick lumber, I would buy more 8/4 and do it. My preferred method is to use thick slabs, but the woodstore I buy from locally gets an additional premium for that, too. These folks deal primarily with commercial cabinet type shops, so their priority is 4/4 stuff.

    When ever I get the chance I head out to a small mill near Huntsville, TX to pick up a few pieces. He's somewhat more reasonably priced on locally available lumber, and sells slabs at something closer to his regular bdf price for the other stuff. Early last summer a bunch of us from Austin, Houston, Bryan/College Station and Tyler all got together there in Huntsville at the mill. I bought BBQ and we had a great time. I picked up enough 8/4 mesquite to make two rocking chairs and was still ahead on what it would have cost me locally after paying for the BBQ and gas.

    Well, I'm inclined to agree with Travis. Dave, it is amazing how quickly and well you can pull these renderings together!
