« Part 9: The dreaded Dry Fit Part 10 of Shaker Night Stand series no next part

So … among my 3,000 eye problems is intermittent double vision.

But … I don’t think that’s the problem, here.

I seek the expert counsel of the venerated and revered LumberJocks:

IS IT just me …. ??

Tenons are better the second time around!!

Incidentally, I occasionally do more than just clean my shop :-)

Cheers, All!

Very nice Neil. I knew you were doing mahogany night stands but man those are nice.

Good job.

Yea Neil….........good show. I can hardly wait to see those beauties finished. I am only disappointed in one thing, I don’t think you learned a thing…....they are both perfect…...........(-:

That’s a heck of a way to cut your woodworking eye teeth…..........more guts than I have, as long as I am making shop jigs, nothing has to be perfect….............

I assume those drawers need pulls, what are you going to use?

U*h…excuse my question, but what makes them “Shaker” style? I made a ton of repro shaker and never an exposed tenon, and the top would have an overhang , for starters.

Looks like ya had fun tho’, that’s all that really matters I guess.

I concur with Jim, Neil, I think they both look fantastic. I wish I could do that well with 20/20. You may not get to spend as much time in the shop as you would like, but it is obvious that you do make the most of the time you do get down there.

Thanks for sharing,

More tomorrow. I’m spent.

But … sphere:

AAAAAhhhhh! Right, you are!!!

They’re Mission style. I just got used to calling them Shaker, but … I stand corrected, and offer my thanks.

I’ll be back. There’s a (big) glass of wine with my name on it!
