Small Walnut and Maple end table to compliment the TV stand made earlier. Somethings were done differently, but they look good together. This was another fun project and I’m starting to hate the fact that the living room is now furnished. It seems that I must have an ongoing project at ALL TIMES! I think that I am addicted now and I’m thinking up a new computer desk for my wife’s new computer (Christmas Gift)....hope she doesn’t see this posting until after tomorrow! LOL MERRY CHRISTMAS and thanks in advance for any feedback.

Your furniture building is great. Do you build from plans or do you just wing it…..........

I have the same problem with our house where it is fully finished. I just finished a coffee table and end table but I’m already working on the design for the next generation. I managed to convince my wife that the furniture will continually be replaced as my skills and designs evolve. Luckily, she bought that line otherwise I’m not sure what I would do.

Merry Christmas to All

Redryder, I don’t bother with plans because I just feel that they take away from the originality of the piece. I will however “borrow” ideas from other pieces and try to make them my own, so I guess you can say that I wing it but in a controlled kind of way with measurements for good continuity and I always over cut, then fine tune the pieces with dry fitting (never rely on measuring alone). EarlS, my only advise to you is that you should make sure that the old furniture never goes to waste. When I start upgrading, I plan to ensure that my old creations go to a family that is in need of the furniture and besides they will have furniture that cannot be bought in stores and will last a lifetime. Thanks for the comments fellas!

Great work, sir. As for your addition… when I first found LJ, I was on the site all the time and posted this link – Many others have posted similar threads. Looking forward to seeing your wife’s desk.
