That's great stuff Fred! Really nice and something about the fact that you made it yourself makes it all the better.

Thanx. Steve, that was all with a chain saw, cheap ass table saw, hand held jig saw, cordless drill, sand paper/ with rotary sander & elbow grease--you should be able to really kick ass with that new set up you're putting together ;) All that pine I used came off the barn floor as I needed to replace boards.

That's the latest rage Fred! Reclaimed wood is what it's all about for country chic. See how far ahead of the curve you were! ;) Check out the prices that guys are fleecing people with money to burn. :shock: http://www.restorationhardware.com/cata ... rod1617202

I have had a few pieces launch backwards out of the table saw, took one right in the chest and it ricocheted ended up 30 feet in the back yard. !!

A riving knife and a well placed featherboard can be good insurance against flying cutoff's!! It is impressive when you turn around and see it impaled into the drywall behind you!

Also a good test for how sturdy you've made it. :clap: toothy I like the coat rack, and, the saw looks like it will do much for you--just remember--yiggy's--had a cabinet maker friend from Finland that used to refer to any jigs he made as yiggy's :D Have fun with it Steve. Here's some pieces I've made over the years.

Hey! You used to be really talented. I really like that first chest. Has a Shaker feel to it.

Nice work guys, Fred nice work, americans furniture makers such as you make pieces that are classic in that they are functional and pleasing to the eye and have just the right amount of, " I built this myself " showing. we could get some nice threads going while our stoves rest for the summer, SteveZee, there are standards involved in kitched cabinets and I would be happy to share with you. Good luck and keep us up dated on your projects..... p.s....you are so right about what folks will pay for stuff that has THAT LOOK.

My finger never did heal after kickback took it into the blade -- I would trade anything to have had that safe saw then - :?
