So it is that time again in my workshop, PLANNING my favorite time full of potential and lacking in the reality of things like dull saw blades, bad cuts or mess ups. I also so am at a sand still with regards to my shop as it is going to rain and with a small shop the table saw ends up outside so a couple one stop shop projects this weekend and then start the next project.
I just finished the turtle stool and enjoyed it but it was not something new, so the next project is going to be a piece of children’s furniture for my seven year old. It will be shaped like a tower with shelves in the middle over a set of three drawers. I am going to paint it (probably pink as that is her favorite color). I have hand drawn some plans and I think it is pretty solid in design.
The issues that I see as potentially putting a fly in my ointment are that I have never done drawers in fact it is the least appealing thing in my opinion to do as a woodworker I can’t explain it I have never made one it just looks sucky. Second do I paint and then assemble or assemble and then paint? Either way I see issues. Finally I will haft to use my circular and jig saw for a lot of the back.
I am excited to start this and since my wife, while loves me does not enjoy the woodworking process until the finished product is in front of her, does not want updates I am going to post this project from start to finish in blogs and see how it goes. I apologize I am new and some of you more experienced woodworkers will see lots of mistakes. Heck I may even go crazy and put a video or two on here.
Enjoy and thank you.
