Murph, that's funny, because that's one of the things that I've always enjoyed about woodworking as well.... and likely why my lack of ideas with particular problem was bugging me.

I'm still working on my workshop of late. I'm both excited that I'm getting it into "workable" condition (lots of problem-solving here) and equally frustrated that I have no room to work.

I used my biscuit joiner for the first time yesterday with the small blade for face frames (making cabinets of drawers). The tool doesn't go back in it's molded case with it's current setup, so I left it out when I was done. I must have moved it 8 times yesterday because I have NO freakin' horizontal surfaces to use until I get organized. Yet I can't get organized till I have a place to work!

Business has been quiet lately. I won't mind that at all if I can just make some progress in getting this shop set up!

I got back to this project and finished it today. I now have 6 very deep drawers (28" with full-extension drawer slides) to start organizing stuff and get it all off the horizontal surfaces.

Even though these two cabinets were only for the workshop, I treated them as an exercise towards eventual nicer stuff.

God, I love my workshop when I can actually work in it!

Mark, I am in awe of your wood.



Let me rephrase--I am in awe of your woodworking skills. I wish you would make more stuff and post all the time in this thread.

Would you mind coming over and building me a chest of drawers to replace my parents beautiful mahogany chest. My sister took it home with her when she came to help me clear out my basement. wink

Really nice work, Mark. I have wood envy.

I love the juxtaposition of the nicely finished drawers with the utilitarian bench legs.

Ha! I put in that workbench when we bought the house. It's 16' long if I remember correctly and the base is all 4X6s. It's rock-solid, but for good or bad, I followed the "level" of the floor so the workbench top is not level. OTOH, if I had built it to be level, one end of it would be thigh-level. smile
