You get my point. I appreciate your "attention" to detail and wanting the finished result to look "professional", and it certainly does. It would be interesting to see what you do when it comes to more "refined" projects, like cabinets, furniture, small chests, etc. Best to Ya!
I get your point.
As far as what I will/have done w/"refined" projects:
In the winter of '76-77, anticipating a move to my property in the wilds of Alaska,
I would need something to put my cloths and stuff in. So, while still living in civilization
and access to a garage, I build this hutch/buffet.
I had a skil saw, a table saw, a router and orbital sander.
In the spring, when I did build my little cabin, this cabinet and a cot to sleep on
were my total furniture possessions in the world.
It has served me well in the 42 years since.
It is standing next to my desk in my office as we speak.
A few years later, when I decided I was tired of working heavy const and concrete work and
it was time to get serious about going back to college. I needed a desk. So, I built this.
It worked well. Got me through a degree in Solid State Physics....which led me into
a 38 year career of fixing computers. I sold it before I left Alaska.....
wish I would have kept it now.
This is a walnut head board I built for our water bed. When the water bed went
away, we kept it. It is now a knick-knack shelf in my wife's parlor.
I especially like the "floating" shelves for the lamps.
Not pictured, my current computer desk, which I built from pallets when
I was too broke to buy real material. It's 42yrs old, also. Still going strong.
Too many built ins that were never pictured.
I do ok w/refined projects.
