Two Craftsman Chests & A Bedframe

My apologies for the way this project is ending with a whimper instead of a climax.

I have been blogging this project over the past 8 months and began it over a year ago. Yet, my friend still caught me by surprise and dropped by my office/study to see if he could pick up one of the pieces and transport it home. (I live across the street from my church/office/study.) In my last blog entry, I told everyone I finally got the knobs on, was going to dust them off and take good pictures to share. Yet, I couldn’t make him wait any longer than taking these three hasty pics of the dusty group.

Two group shots and one of what you can do with a Porter Cable Dovetail Jig (4212, I believe).

Maybe I’ll get some more close-ups of the remaining chest and bed frame on a last blog entry before he returns. But who knows?

Dust does have a tendency to collect where work is being done. The furniture looks good, dust and all.

These pieces all came out so well…nice work. Bet it’s nice in some ways that you’ll be parting with these…

Just a bunch of great work, Paul. I’ve been waiting for these to be finished. You’ve done yourself proud on this set. I use the PC as well. It sure works for me.
