I've Been Busy
 
I realized it's been way to long since I've been on this site and have many questions to ask. However so I don't seem to only take and take and take, I figured I'd share some photos of the projects that have kept me busy in the last year or so!

These are photos of the dresser I built in anticipation of my significant other moving in. Gotta make room for her clothes!

And here's a desk built for her office. Just need to get it finished.

Here's my solution to needing a big dining room table but not having a big dining room. Just need to get it edged and painted!

And here are a few "before" photos of the kitchen island and bed, or bed posts actually. "After" photos will be posted in a few days once I get home.

Wow Daren, these look fantasic. Can't wait to see more. She is going to LOVE the dresser for sure. Haven't seen that kind of quality in any store. Love the table as well.

Get busy. Need to see more.

Thanks Aaron. Do you mean the veneered square posts? Those were used for the head and footboards on my bed. I'm in the process on building the upholstered headboard right now and will post photos of it when it's done.

Thanks MH. It was the second time I made a specific effort to have all the grains book matched and given the slab drawer faces, the first time it was obvious. I love it!

As it turns out, she helped to build everything. She enjoys using power tools so I couldn't help but to oblige her - pretty much used every tool in my arsenal. Table saws, track saw, router table, domino joiner, jointer, planer, miter saw, drills, drivers, you name it. Phew!

Yeah, busy is one way of putting it. A significant other who likes power tools. Lucky dog. Nice work!

Daren, WOW! You have been busy.

I too love the grain on the dresser. The desk, table, on and on. Coulda had three great threads going right now.

Keep them coming.

Wow those are nice projects Daren, busy is an understatement lol. I really like the legs on the dining table and beautiful matching on the dresser drawer fronts. Lucky you for having a lady who enjoys power tools!

Nice work man! The extending dining table has some fancy legs. NICE! Great job on all of it.
