warning: square peg in the shop

Hey fellow woodworking buffs. What your dealing with here is a jack of all trades type, master of none, presently waking up to the fact that the world does what it want's to whether i like it or not. So, how to deal with this kind of nutcase? Well, give him 10 or so years in the construction trade in metro NYC and Colorado, 3 yrs in furniture sales and repairs then send him down south back to school to learn he finds higher education too sophisticated to be true , and then challenge him by giving him? a generous supply of furniture grade hardwoods(yes, it was all free, there will be a photo posted soon) and where does he end up? Thank you for such a cool place to hang out and talk shop, ya'll.

Thank you JohnK007,
As for the hardwood acquired, it seems to me that the biggest challenge is making the wisest and most efficient use of it possible, within the limitations of "supply on hand" , for lack of a better description. This mostly consists of bird's eye maple flooring, 3/4 4" and 5" width, and 2 1x10x8 quarter sawn oak boards, and several small pieces of oak flooring. Somewhere lurking around the house is a detailed list, if and when i come across it, it will be posted. I've put together a demonstration box from some small pieces of the 5" maple, it's in the photo album BE maple box. My plan for that is to remove the gawky cabinet screws, cut the holes off each end, and then build a nicer one using glued rabett joints.
Looking forward to reading your posts and viewing your pics!

Interesting box you made. It certainly looks strong! Looks like you could support a truck on it
