Here are a few pictures of a Jefferson Writing Desk I made and a James Krenov inspired cabinet on stand I have been working at for a while now. With two young boys (5 & 7), a cross country move, renovations of the new (for us) house and my age (48 now) I have lots on my plate, so things often don’t take shape as quick as they once did.

Very nice. The Writing Desk is a beaut and the Krenov cabinet will be great. You are experiencing the same time rationing as the rest of us. I’m retired now and can’t find the time I want to do ww’ing.

Just found your latest posted piece. For a customer. And you are a really good craftsman and I think have a flair for what’s good design. I’d really be interested in seeing your Krenovian cabinet as well.

I’m looking forward to tagging along on your journey as a woodworker/artisan.

stay warm..LOL
