First off my next project is going to be about the size of a coaster. I found out real soon into the build of this project that I didn’t have near the room I wished I had in my little two car garage. Regardless I still had fun with this one. I wish now that I had spent more time in Sketchup showing all the finish trim work. One thing I really like is how I was able to incorporate an antique window into the desk with a picture of our kids. The carcass is made completely of 3/4” ply. The top is the same and cut as one piece to fit over the two smaller book cases. I used dark walnut stain and antique white for the finish. The wife is happy and that’s always a good thing.

I know what you mean (I’m sure we all do) about building big stuff.

I made a large dresser for myself out of 3/4 baltic, liberally slathered with oak, big drawers (oak/elm) etc.

Seemed like as the project progressed, someone was slipping powdered red kryptonite into my coffee.

Turns out, each time you decide to add something, the object gets heavier, until finally you have to go beg help from management to move the darn thing around.

Since that project, I focussed on smaller items out of self-preservation, though I do have this big cedar table in process. All the pieces so far are really light!!!
