The cabinet doors are completed and have finish on them. I am very happy with how it turned out. I am still working on laying out where I will hang things in the doors and I think I might make some plates with my CNC that have some neat texture to them. They will probably be done as I can get to them. I have started carving the till frame and I should have about another day to finish it.
I have started to look at the plans of the bench that came with the set and reading back over the workbench book by Scott Landis and Schwarz’s Workbench Design Book to start thinking about how this is all going to play out. I have some fun plans for the bench including a plank for holding chairs. I hope it turns out as well as everything else has so far.
So as the title of today’s blog says I have branched out from this project. I received an order for a project plan for my hobbit desk build. This is not the first request I have had for this so I decided to take it on. I have been studying sketchup this year and I think I have learned enough to do it justice.
I have had other requests for plans to things I have designed over the years so if there is something that interests you let me know and I will see if I can add it to my list. I am thinking later this year I will put together a chair making DVD with plans and patterns to build two or three different styles of chairs. Let me know what you all might vote in.
The next branch I have decided to climb out onto is the youtube branch. I have a few short videos on youtube that to be frank are pretty lame. I have started a video on the remodel and it will feature the till and the cabinet. It will probably be followed up by maybe two more.
So there it is, that is where I am with everything for now. Big plans ahead. I am working on a few patents for tool designs, videos, sketchup plans and contemplating starting some online classes or dvd classes for chair making. Looks to be a busy year.
Take care everyone,
Be safe and have fun woodworking.
