« Part 2: Progress Update Part 3 of Small Entertainment Cabinet series Part 4: A little side tracked, again... »

Hi Everyone;

I used to think I worked pretty quickly, but now I know better. I just can’t seem to get any time in the shop lately. Seems that paperless paperwork and meetings is what I really do for a living.

Takes me half an hour just to remember where I left off.

Anyway, I posted some progress shots on my site.

And one day, I’ll finish.(maybe)

All those curves would do my head in, you are indeed a brave and talented man to take on that one! I will enjoy seeing the end result, just take all the time you need.

that is one beautiful piece …. in theory … since it doesnt seem to end…. I might steal those curved doors idea someday, they give such a nice large opening to the interior.

I also think we need to discuss our definition of ‘small’.... :)

Remarkable Lee.

Love the doors. I would have thought the open part at the top of the doors would straighten out some and not give you a nice fit without leaving some of the form at the top. Your insight and craftmanship is incredable to me. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Hi PurpLev;

Thank you. It has the potential, if I could only finish it!

Well small compared to the “norm”, like the one in the first picture.

The curved doors idea isn’t mine, so “steal” away!

Hi Rusty;

Thank you for your comments.

The doors behave themselves.

This is the same technique we used in this other project, but much smaller:

I’m looking forward to the finished product also.

Lee, I join others in thanking you. The things you post are such an inspiration to me.
I think as woodworkers we all fear, yet are intrigued by building something with curves, maybe its a phase or a step in the woodworking journey. If it is, then I for one am glad to have Lee showing us the way.
My only regret is I wished I lived closer, where I could spend a couple of weeks in your shop.
BTW- have you ever thought about starting a school ???

Thanks for posting

Hi Lee:
I am following this project with eery installment. You do great designs and the execution is excellent.
I wish I was closer to you to come in and sweep floors at your shop! ;-)

Hi Dave;

Very kind of you to say. I would certainly welcome company, but then you would see all my screw ups.

Curves are just straight lines with a bend in them. It’s making things square that scares me!

I’ve never thought about starting a school, but I have considered finishing school a couple times.

Thanks again;

Lee

Thank you;

You are nothing short of inspiring Lee. I am constantly impressed with the level of detail and craftsmanship in your work.
