Today I’ll glue up the dresser top and that will be the last solid top that I have to glue up. I have cut all the drawer fronts to rough size as well so far. Now I’m waiting to get more wood. In the mean time I’ve been experi...

It's been a few years since I've edited my profile and a few things have changed. My wife is again pregnant, and our oldest daughter is now 18 months old. We have moved to Apple Valley, MN and I now have a 2 stall garage to use as a shop. I've acquired a few more tools, some for free, and made a few more projects. I still consider myself relatively new to woodworking and have yet to try more difficult joinery such as mortise and tenon or projects other than simple cabinets.
I'm currently working as a Certified Athletic Trainer for HealthPartners and am in the process of applying to Physician Assistant school. During that time I'm hoping that I can make a little side money making projects for people and expanding my skills. I think my wife has realized that I can make some darn good projects now and will let me build a dedicated shop after I finish school.
I appreciate any tips and feedback on anything I build. And I would like to get a little more into using hand tools versus power tools. While they help with time, eventually I'll be retired and have nothing but time on my hands and kids to fix things for!

I’ve decided to go with white maple and brown maple for the wood. I’ll use the white maple for door/drawer fronts, side panels, shelf, and top. I’ll use the brown maple for the legs and rails. I’ll have to face glue a few pieces of the brown maple...
This is my first time actually doing a blog on here, although I’ve posted a few projects already. I’m in the process of designing a dresser/baby changing table for my 1st child that is due in 2 months (it’s a girl). I’ve ...
