Blackie,

Your photography is starting to pick up too. I like the color and long drawers here. And that is no BS. The finish really shows in these shots. If you are of the notion, I think these would sell. Ride the wave, Dude, ride the wave.

Jim, trick is to cut with the grain, it hides the cut lines. They are there just can’t see them.

That is some unusual looking Zebrawood and the walnut even has some Zebra pattern. Great choice and matching of these woods.

I’m also finding a new method when it comes to glueing up two different woods together, my making them smaller say 1/4” to 3/8” thick I can just cut the glue line thus making only one seam on the ends instead of two as you see in this box it has two seam lines on the end.

I’m not entirely sure how you executed this on the bandsaw. I tell you what, though; it’s fantastic. I think the deep drawers set it apart as a piece that will actually be USED. Are you selling these? If so…where?
