Hi guys weather has been crappy so I never have gotten back to the garden gate :(
this is my latest in two projects of mine to show potential clients my work. I am proceeding to build 1/2 scale furniture that could be packed in the back of a car.
The dresser is made from solid red oak and pocket screws using glue to hold glides and small details in place that would normally be held in place by screws, with poplar drawers dovetailed to the oak.
The next piece will include a kitchen table shaker style made from poplar and rails fastened to the legs using pocket hole screws instead of mortise and tenons

Nice job there. Even 1/2 size looks like a marketable piece.
