Is it done yet??? Great build so far. Curved drawer sides would have been unique, but finding curved slides would be tough. I commend you on your "hand" work. It's always a learning process.

I don't know how but I almost missed this. Fun, reminds me of me. I like the curvy stuff too.

Keep up the good work!

Thx Bret, I hope I get to your level some day... That's my goal anyway.

lol, very true Brink. But if he is my clone I feel sorry for the world! One was too much!

If you don't get this done soon, the kid's kid will need it...

It does look good though. Don't rush it.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

Nice day's catch!!! Did you take those in the Gulf near where you live?

The little fish in my photo is just for bait....I wish. A 15lb chinook, the perfect size for the BBQ. The Columbia River is just a stones throw from my house. The biggest I've caught was 25 but I've seen up to 65.

Nice looking fish there, Bret! They are Red Fish (Red Drum) and the few to the sides of the second picture if Black Drum. Didn't chase any Speckled Trout today.

We fished at the end of the Earth - Chauvin, LA 2.5 hrs South. (there are much closer places) We didn't have too much trouble finding the fish, we had trouble finding ones small enough to be tasty! Lol

Biggest of the day was a 32lb Black Drum. The state record for Red Fish is 61lbs and was caught in the same area we fished today although they get close to 100lbs on the East Coast and live in much deeper water.

Firing up the pit tomorrow!

A little progress today! Roughed out the drawer fronts (I kinda like the knots) made the guides and got one of 4 hung... Oh, and a pict of the dovetails.

Hope to be finished with this on Monday and move to finishing!

Thx, The drawer boxes are poplar, I made the guides out of poplar and oak. I never have any heart burn about using cheap wood where it doesn't show. And the poplar was a better choice for the boxes than cypress like the rest of it is made of as it will hold the dovetails better.

Hey Tom. Looking good. I'm more of a rustic furniture guy. But I like the lines and craftsmanship of your work. Can't wait to see with a finish on it. What do you plan on finishing it with? Keep em comin.

When it's rustic......it's rustic
