Same story on this piece. I had found a plan somewhere for this inexpensive pine chest. I had built several pieces of pine prototypes and ended up getting several requests to build those pieces.

After this couple bought a complete set of tables for there cabin they came back and asked for a chest.

I had to spring into action and produce one.

I built this pro0type and lined it with cedar and made various other changes but ended up with a piece very close to this one I still have stuffed in a corner in my office.

I ended up selling quite a few of these also.

They are very easy and inexpensive to build.

I also ended up building another pine style very close to this and even less money.

Tomfran,

Thank you.

Tom I am self taught as you know. If I can do these projects anyone can.

Trust me.

I have always thought ( and I admit I was at first ) afraid of making a mistake and taking risks.

Again its only wood.

Again, if It doesn’t work out for you it makes great firewood, and even the worse day in the shop is better than any day at work.

Msdebbie,

Oh lordly if you only knew.

Because of all the projects I have built and have on display I have to go outside to change my mind, because it is so cramped.

This last spring I finally collected several pieces and donated them and or just gave them away.

It was part of cleaning out my mind and life phase.

How did that work out for me?

No so good.

I just built new and more pieces.

Sigh.

Debbie

Your so right.

I no longer do I am who and what I am, no more, no less.

I like to build things.

Period.
