I'm Back

I haven't been on the forum much lately - only a handfull of times during the past few months (I'm sure you've missed me). But, that's one of the joys of a hobby, I can make sawdust if I want or not if I don't want. It was so dang hot in Oklahoma during much of the summer that I didn't work in the shop much and got distracted by other activities. When it finally cooled off a little, I got out there and finished another display cabinet. It's not perfect but it's not horrible. Most importantly, the new owner likes it.

That's a nice looking wall unit. Well done. Did you make it in two pieces?

Thanks, guys. It's good to be back. I've got a few smaller projects planned for this winter and I'm ready for something smaller. The display cabinet is two pieces and it's still dang huge! - it got really heavy with all the glass and mirror. It's poplar and birch plywood - paints really smooth. On this one, I finally figured out how to adjust and use my cheap HVLP spray gun, which was wonderful. I'm gonna get back in the shop and post some more this winter.

I had to tear out an old, built-in book case in that corner to install the cabinet in an 80-year-old house. Holy Cow! the tear-out almost kicked my tail. The previous carpenter loved to drive nails.

One of my friends is a carpenter. He even has a nail pouch that he wears around his waist. Its even got a hook on the side to hang a hammer.

The new owner sent me a photo

The lady sent a photo of the cabinet after she loaded it up. It's just a cabinet but she's in love with it. It sure feels good to know the customer enjoys the product. She wants me to build another, smaller curio cabinet in a few months.
