Hey folks…..

Has anyone posted a tutorial or blog on how to make the cracked dressers or boxes?

I’m sure I could figure it out but would much rather review the steps from someone who has already made one or two and worked out the wrinkles.

Cheers…Don

Agree with Rick. I think the “cracked” will go on my list. And I have to take a look at his website for sure. What a mind…

What he builds isn’t that complicated. He has a vivid imagination and knows his materials well. That 1/8” Italian bending poplar is fun as well as wacky board.
