Nice Hutch you made. Great finish, looks like it is quite old.

Niece piece. All your projects are beautiful and inspiring.

Your desire do work in wood fulltime(from your profile) I understand having been doing it for the last 17 months. Should you choose to “jump” as I did, have a well thought out plan, and dont be dissuaded from your path as I was. It took me a whole year before I made up my mind to do a custom casket, the direction I had been prompted to go in but was discouraged from by “the system” to get funds for startup. Fortunately before my business grant money ran out I was able to to make a casket for my dear friend. The last 2 days I’ve been back in a semi at night and can only get in the workshop 2 maybe 4 hours a day.

Stick to your guns Phil. Your work is great.

Very nice work again Phil. Great color. Many of my pieces looked unintentionaly distressed. ; )

Are any of these for commision or do you keep it all?

Second question: Will you post shop photos? It does not look like a huge place. . I am inspired by what you accomplish.

Beautiful stuff as always Phil. How on earth do you keep pumping out so many pieces at this level of quality. So diverse too. Thnaks for letting us see it.

It looks greatly distressed. I’m not one that sees the point, but many like a new piece that looks 100 years old. Personally I’d like a new piece and have it last 100+ years so the markings would have a story behind them. Nice work!
