I’m working on completing a wall cabinet which I started a couple of years ago (this is a common theme in my woodworking). This week’s progress has been mostly the doors. The frames of the doors are maple, as are the case parts, while the panels in the doors are book matched walnut. This is my first attempt at bookmatching (which isn’t shown in these pictures). The pictures shown here are a front view of one of the doors, the strips which will hold the panel from the back and the joint at one corner of the door.

must be a perfectionist thing (the long-term projects). It wouldn’t be procrastination, laziness, or being flighty.. or any other less desirable qualities).

These doors are going to be amazing.

The perfectionist thing is part of it. Then there’s all the other demands on my time. One of the major reason that I have so many unfinished projects (at least 12 at last count) has to do with my shop. I don’t have a tablesaw, planer or jointer at home, so I take adult ed classes to get access to those tools. It doesn’t feel right (the cheap-skate in me) to use class time for construction that I can do at home. The result is a shop and basement full of uncompleted projects.

Better talk to Santa Claus…every lumberjock deserves their own table saw. I’m not quite sure what is going on, but the doors construction looks interesting.

Santa’s been told, but since we’re planning a major renovation including of the shop space acquiring a table saw right now isn’t in the cards. I really don’t want to put a table saw into storage. Once the shop space is ready one of the first additions will be a table saw.
