well we finally got the corner cabinet built for the show , and now we are into finishing it , its been a long build, but well worth the slower pace, so many details to cover, but its done.
we got thru the Bombe class , and it will resume again 2nd week of March, today i will finish filming some things, and that will have filming done for a while , then next week we have a photo shoot with Woodcraft magazine , looking forward to that , but next week I need to get the Pembroke table made and parts for a second, I like doing it this way and plan on doing the same thing with show projects , having a completed piece to reference to as we build , so we can see the result we are looking to achieve helps a lot I think, the next show build is a Mahogany Lowboy , it’s a small , simpler one, but oh so beautiful, no carving , but planning on some veneering , it will encompass a lot of detail instruction on cabriolet legs , Mortise and Tenon , and dovetailed drawers , and of course the finishing , the piece is a historical one from the Mesda Collection in North Carolina , hope you join us .
I am also working on getting the news letter written , over the weekend , and by the end of next week hope we are back on schedule , I have been amazed how busy it has been, the forums have been pretty quiet , but emails tell us alot of you are in your shops working , a good thing.
The Jefferson Chest we did are now at Monticello , I think, they were recieved quite well and got a lot of attention , it will be interesting to see how quick they sell… those chest have always been a big hit since the first one we made , people love small chest , or boxes of any kind, and surprisingly enough , the blog stats show us what searches people use to find things we have addressed here , the number 1 search is “secret compartments “, and slant front desk , its there everyday and usually several, so I am thinking for the 3rd show project it should be a slant front desk, what do you guys think , let me know , thinking 4th might be a chair , its your show so tell me what ya want to see
ok , off to get another cup of coffee and then rock and roll , stay warm and safe , later ya’ll
