    I like it! I would like to hear more about how you made the legs. There's several dynamics going on to make those work as they have, so if you have time to bullet list the steps you followed I...

    Love it. Very smart approach, and good idea to avoid ladders when possible.

    Two ideas for you:

    - Fun/Joking (but maybe not really) - A little mini basketball hoop on the front of that would...

    I wish you lived here in PA Glenn, as I would become your apprentice (whether you liked it or not :) ). Your eye for design always stands out for me, and your methods through each project just make...

    Just read your thread, and thank you for the link! Your use of "in situ" caught my eye, as I'm the only guy I know that uses that terminology. Also... I'm mad at you because I saw the couch in...

    Excellent eye on the grain matching, and thank you for noticing. As an example, each of these legs is a minimum of 2 pieces glued up. I really try hard to make things like this invisible, and to...

    I will definitely look into that more Lee. I'll admit that my tensioning method is presently "tighten it a lot and hope it works", which is fine for basic curve cuts, but probably not scientific...

    I guess I'll need to start on another room at this point - everything in this pic (except the couch) is something I built. Living room, done. Next! :)

    Our realtor felt that our 2-story, 25x30 outbuilding more than offset our investment for a couple reasons:

    I built a set out of white oak many years ago, and they rotted much more quickly than I would have expected (even with annual care). It was still worth it as a learning experience at the time, but...
