Well here is the finished dressing table. A mix of Oak and Fastigata among others.
Feel free to check the video that maps a little of how I went about it.

Cheers,

Andy.

Excellent work Andy! With joinery like that it should last a life time. I see you had a home already picked out for it.
Thanks for sharing!

Absolutely beautiful.

We have a slot in our master bathroom where I’ve long considered adding something like this. Yours will be a great inspiration !

Most Excellent! You did a fantastic job Andy! Thanks for the videos too! It is fun to watch others work on their projects. I really like the drawer fronts on the top. Their figure is amazing!

I can’t wait to see the next project.

Was this an all day everyday project, or was just in the evenings and on weekends? What was it, about 3 weeks?

Andy,

Nice improvements! The video flows smoothly. Actually never thought of you as a purist. LOL Just a really skilled guy! Like the use of the story board, the creative use of the belt sander, and the bikes in the background.

Was in the shop, still cleaning up, and said to myself”what would Andy do?” :) Picked up a south western table awhile back. Turns out after I dissassembled it it’s made in Thailand! Starded rubbing the finish with fine grit, then went to my Makita orbital. Fine dust everywhere! I do have a dust collector than needs assembly. LOL

But, I was actually working with a piece of furniture. And I believe that’s what you’d do. LOL.

First step on the path. Visualizing you working in my shop!

Thanks for your comments guys. Harriet is indeed very happy. I think wo to go the project took about 8 days mostly 8 – 5 and that included the sketching etc. You get a taste of reality working in a home garage, but as you can see it is doable. Great to hear your making some dust Tom. Yes I would have made dust before fixing the dust collector, but would fix it now because what a darn mess you’ve made lol
