Okay… you asked for it. :) Here’s a project completed a couple years ago for yet another niece (a niece-in-law). This one lives in Paradise, CA and had to evacuate last week. She made the ‘mistake’ one Christmas of mentioning she needed a dresser (pictures not yet posted) and ended up getting a nice fourteen drawer dresser. The following year she got matching night stands. Can a bed be next?

Tiger maple top and face frame. Standard GF Oil finish (seal & top coat). I made the pulls out of Cocobolo. So here are Stephanie’s nightstands. Also displayed are a couple of examples of my wife’s art. Enjoy.

I think it was Marc Spagnolo who once commented that more often than not, the most interesting thing in a project photo can be found in the background. Here you can see I used white board sheets as the panel in my raised panel shop cabinet doors. This has prooved very handy as I can quickly write down dimensions that can be easily read from across the room.

Tim, I’d never thought about whiteboards, but that’s a great idea. These are really, really nice. I love the dovetails and striped maple.

Nice one Tim,

BTW, Most of the evacuations are being lifted and people are going home. I hope it keeps up. The fires are getting rediculous. Half the fire trucks in the state and some from out of state are in Chico. We salute them as they drive by.

Re the Chico/Paradise fires. The fire first ran up the west canyon in June and now the east canyon. If a fire ever goes up either ridge it could be a huge disaster. All those firefighters must be exhausted.
