  • My other hobby

    I like to make sawdust. Sometimes it's something small, perhaps a music box or cutting board.
    Other times it's a bit more of a project.

    This is my latest. Signed off on it yesterday.

    The cabinets are Sapele stained Sedona Red, the drawers are Spalted Maple with Quilted Maple Veneer fronts. I now consider myself an expert at half-blind dovetails. All was sanded to 220 with an orbital sander and then hand sanded to 400. The finish is 12 coats of wipe-on polyurethane with much steel wooling between to achieve that baby butt smooth final coat.


    I can't help that I get older, but you can't make me grow up!

            Thanks everyone!

            I got the Sapele from Woodcraft on Bethel. The spalted maple for the drawer boxes came from Almendingers sawmill in Johnstown (www.asawmill.com ) the Quilted Maple veneer came from www.veneersupplies.com (as did the vacuum press to do it)

            My wife needed MORE places to keep her scrapbooking supplies, so it is up to her to figure out what will go where.

              Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

                  I would guess that I have somewhere north of 250-300 hours total - from drawing the plans to getting the materials together, 42 drawers worth of dovetails, etc......

                  And TYVM!

                          This is nuts. Yesterday it was saying "you are not authorized to send attachments" the photos were uploaded directly from my laptop, not Photobucket. Then today I tried and it posted them on my end. Now they are gone. I have had issues posting pictures here for months.

                            Currently the forum is not set to allow users to upload images as an attachment. That means the only way to post photos is by posting them on an imaging hosting site like flickr, imgur or Google photos (since photobucket doesn't work anymore).
