This was the last project at school. It remains today as you see it in the pictures from 4 years ago. I may never finish it. No inspiration.

Well what are you waiting for…That is a lot of work to stop just two days short of completion. I can give you an ex’s number if you need someone in your life to nag you!

No nagging needed. I’ll eventually finish it I guess. But it will have to be in my “spare time”. HAHA!

Other than drawers, cubby-holes, whats left.

You can use this as a training tool to build or reinforce some construction techniques, Some finishing techniques.

And then you can trash it, if you want. I mean it’s taking up space that could probably be used for other things.

Make dust, Have Fun.

and you are not inspired because….. ??
You don’t want the job of refinishing? You don’t like the desk? You aren’t pleased with the end result? ...

It’s not my personal style and it will not be in my house. If someone wanted to buy it I would finish it for resale. Right now it is just collecting dust up at the shop.

It’s good to hear that professionals procrastinate, too. Time to move on, sell it, give it to charity and build one that will inspire you.

Ryan isn’t procrastinating, but simply letting the wood age before finishing it. Well, it was an idea…

If it were cherry, that would be an idea, Bill. What wood did you make it out of anyway, Ryan?

Great job. It’s amazing what one can make from a bunch of old skids. Beautiful looking cabinet work.
