« Part 4: Legs and Aprons Part 5 of Asian Cabinet series no next part

I made a video for the Asian Cabinet project that I posted last week. I shot some video, tooks some high quality photos, and a lot of pictures that I tweeted on Twitter throughout the project. It is from this material that I made the video.

Thanks For Sharing:)

Fantastic. It turned out great. Brian, by the way, I use to listen to that song in grad shcool, back in the late 80s or maybe just after in the early 90s. Is that Hiroshima?

Thank you, for putting this on lumber jocks. I am a part-time hobby wood worker who thought I could build it better than what I could get from IKEA. After watching master craftsmen like yourself, Todd Clippinger and others, I realise I’ve got away to go yet!!. Shows like yours, inspire me to keep trying to improve all the time,
so please keep doing the podcast for those of us that need them.

Many thanks again,Alfred222
