Though this is not assembled yet as I am waiting for the free time to finish it, I started posting the earlier stages. I find it difficult to recall those events when a project is already done.

If you want to see how it was done please see:


The details is there in the blog. I like everyone to find out all the defects. All criticisms are welcome. There is nothing to lose on my part. I am just learning woodworking quite far from what I am teaching maritme education. I like more feedback from you so I can learn and improve my skills, knowledge, etc. Thanks.

Looking good.
The only thing I’d say is that the grain on the top drawer doesn’t match the others (as yet!)

Very well done, Bert. Isn’t it a double good feeling when you both use scrap wood (so to speak) and yet turn it into something useful and appreciated.

Thanks to all
Don, I express fully my excitement and feeling in the 2nd part of the blog. Just view and read it. The best feeling you will get when you rescue those on the wastecan and make them useful again! Overwhelmed … excited, amazed, glad… LOL and many vocabulary words but only me can feel it that no words can replace.
Till next..

Thanks, I know that grains are disoriented. That’s the beauty of it, that’s an eyecatcher for those who knew the art of woodworking. If you noticed, then view the second part of the blog series. Now, you gave me a thought to post the second part as project, so everyone should think the other way around… CUTTING OUT THE DISORIENTATION OF GRAIN… Maybe a good way of putting it as a forum.. You should be the author… please do and I will be the first one to comment … thanks.
