I am an engineer by trade and relatively new at woodworking. I enjoy making pieces from repurposed wood and also enjoy making more traditional pieces. I have a 16'x24' dedicated shop with a table saw, miter saw, bandsaw, jointer, thickness planer, drill press, sanders, and dust collection. All of my power tools and benches are mobile, making reconfiguration and cleaning very easy.
I contracted out the construction of the structure of my shop but did all the finish work: electrical, insulation, wall coverings, and heating/cooling.

I was going to use dovetails or boxjoints for the drawers but I decided to go simple. After all I have cabinet drawers constructed with less integrity that have been abused for more than 20 years. I had some poplar that needed using so I glued...
In this installment I’ll be covering the carcass construction which includes assembling the face frame, sides and base. I’m not covering the construction of the face frame because it’s a very simple face frame assembled with poc...
