« Part 1: You never know Part 2 of and then it becomes....... series Part 3: base »

It’s been a while since this blog started. My mind has been full of so many projects, most of which were rash decisions to start. When I wrote the original part of this I mentioned the materials and that I would start the project the next day. Well I did cut a chunk of maple and it made it’s way from the shop to my dining room table. The table has become my carving bench, this way I can spend time with the future owner to this project who happens to be my girlfriend. The excitement she expresses as I carve is awesome, and the rewards are spectacular :-). I don’t want to explain the project itself in detail because of it’s nature, the course it is on, and the length of time it will take. The first part of the carvings is almost done, perhaps this weekend. I will blog one of the following carvings in detail with pictures. From now on this project is going to be called “Behind Closed Doors” and you will understand why later. On this project expect to see marquetry and carvings. On the main project itself I won’t blog about the joinery or assembly. Only the carving and Marquetry, as it is the main focus of the design. I hope everyone will follow along this long process as the end should be very rewarding to all.
