Wow, that's looking really nice! Did you add some small inlays at the corners?

This is progressing beautifully. Anything special planned for your drawer fronts?

Looking fantastic. I was wondering how you were going to mount the slides. Nice use of scraps. Great work

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Yeah, they are walnut to match the Maple Bed I made and the Toy Box I am working on as well.

Nothing special planned - I am open to ideas though and would like some input - I just got back from the lumber mill and got some maple for them - was thinking about 1/2" thick rectangular fronts with no champfer (enough champfers already I think).

OT?

The pony kegs or "cornelius kegs" are for a spray solution that my company uses. So I normally have 5-10 of them laying around at varying degrees of fullness.

Can I build that? There's only one way to find out.

I too wondered what you used them for. I used a small army of Cornelius tanks (AKA soda kegs) and standard beer kegs in my beer brewing days. They make excellent fermentation tanks, as well as great containers to "keg" out of. They're also easy to clean.

I could share the sketchup for it but it isn't exact as far as measurements. I seem to draw something up and then tweek the dimensions to fit the wood or what I want it look like.

What a beautiful piece of furniture, certainly an inspiration. I might have scrolled too fast at times but I never saw what you used for a finish; what is the finish?

I used minwax ipswich stain and sprayed one coat of minwax satin poly - it is really cold here now so I will put 2-4 additional coats of spray poly in the spring - no sense heating the garage if i dont have to - also easier to ventilate with garage door open

Can I build that? There's only one way to find out.
