I have had a few projects on my dream project build list ,but what has been on top of the list for a long time is a bombe chest on Chest.
1st obstacle, know how. The “know how” category has been handled by Charles Neil,he has built a few Bombe’s and has even covered the subject on a “mastering woodworking” online class and now teaches a in-person class on the subject.
Obsticale#2 Skill, All I can say is I think I can?
Obstacle #3 Tools and equipment,no problem there.
Obsticale#4 Material I think I’m safe in that department too,having scored on some very nice walnut a few years ago. Obstacle #5 Space, this is a bit of a challenge in that once starting on the Bombe it would pretty much prevent me from doing other projects,but it would be worth it, but on the back end of the space obstacle is where to put it once it’s completed,this is a challenge I’ve yet to overcome even for some projects 95% complete now.Since my house is only 750 sq ft. I really can’t blow out anything else to make room for it.
Obstacle #6 Time this too is a bit tough with work,teaching and everyday life is a challenge, but all things worth doing you find time for.
In conclusion will I ever build my Bombe? I hope so, but it’s on the back burner until I can figure out the space thing and perhaps wait until I retire to make the build more of a continual build and not an off and on project.
What’s your dream project and what are you waiting for? or have you built it already?
