Office printer cupboard #5: A few more pictures from the build process

02-25-2010 06:53 AM by timrowledge | 2 comments »

I found a few more shots I took whilst building the cupboard- The first couple of successful test drawers; a previous try with some solid fir failed with splitting along the grain – big surprise. Baltic ply worked much better.Dovetails came out mostly good; you should be able to spot a couple of minor goofs here. Some careful work with tiny slivers of suitable stock hid them quite well.

Extremely Average #54: Frantic Speed Shopping

02-25-2010 05:19 AM by Ecocandle | 24 comments »

The sun was out today and it was the first time this year that I noticed the days seem to be hanging out a bit longer. They are sneaky that way, sort of creeping up on spring. After all the snow this winter, I will welcome spring with a giddiness that I haven’t experienced in years. Of course, it was still cold out, when I got into my car, but the sunlight on my face warmed my spirits considerably. I had errands to run. I needed to get some petrol and oil for my car.

i have an 84 by 16×39” Parsons Bench. It is in my second bedroom, up agains the only avalable wall in the room (it’s a gambrel house; my outer walls are slanted inward).
