Here’s my first furniture build finished! It’s been in progress for over 6 months, held up by me having to set up my shop and acquire all the tools I needed, and also learning a lot of things and getting very distracted along the way!

Made of red oak, using hand tools, my 14” band saw, circular saw, and drill press I cut the raised panels with a smoothing plane and a rabbet plane, the molding with molding planes, and dovetails by a saw and a chisel. The fixed shelf not visible in the pictures) is joined with a sliding dovetail to keep the sides from bowing, since it’s such a tall cabinet.

Lots! I’m already working on a red oak coffee table commissioned by my brother, and then I have a pine desk commissioned by my other brother, then a whole laundry list of things on my wife’s wish list – cherry bookcase (found cherry lumber for $2/board foot from a local guy), blanket chest, sewing table, jewelry box, Adirondack chair, outdoor table, etc.

On my personal list is a 3 legged stool, custom landing net for fly fishing (bought some nice walnut, ash, and a pretty piece of birdseye maple for this already), and some day a Maloof style rocking chair.
