  1. While I was busy running around trying to keep up with the daily Octoberfest 2017 images I was also building an 8' x 8' entertainment center for my neighbor. We did this from his hand drawn plan which made it twice as hard since we had no cut list and had to hand fit most parts as we went along. Due to the size it was built in four modules and then assembled in his living room.

    Experienced woodworkers don't need the painfully detailed plans that lesser mortals need.
    You did a really good job with it. Photo is pretty good, too.
  7. LOL. Once I made some large dovetailed drawers for fun and then decided to build a modular bed in cherry around them.

    Thanks to all of you for your very kind remarks. And to Jacques if you are going to build dovetail drawers you need to build something to put them in. They are much to fine to waste. ;)

  13. Thanks Walter.
    Appreciate your comment Louis.
  14. Beautiful craftsmanship Gordon. I'm sure your neighbor was thrilled with it.
  15. He is pretty happy with it. He doesn’t have the skills or the equipment to tackle such a project on his own so he is grateful that I took it on. Thanks for the nice comment Brian.

  19. Wow Gordon! You can be my neighbour anytime. I have no building skills at all and I'm always impressed with those that do. You sir have shown to be masterful in your woodworking skills.
