    Great article...very nice work and design. These are the details that give cabinets and furniture that custom -hand made look and feel! Excellent!

    Well done!!

    Whenever we have embarked upon a construction project, whether it be a whole house, an office remodel or simply designing a room, careful and deliberate planning has always made the execution phase so much easier. Obviously Jamie's work demonstrates the same commitment. Again well done!!

    Good artical. Gave me some ideas for the future.

    This summer I made a small sharpening station. I did not want any handles protruding from the front any more than need be. As a result I came up with a solution as shown on this link

    Thanks for the article Jamie, and thanks for the ideas. Nice examples, too. I hadn't thought of tapping hardwood for machine screws, but it makes good sense.

    Vaughn,
    I do it all the time, typicaly a 10-32 screw works well and I get the ones with the big heads from my local ACE store. Or use fender washers.

    Excellent article. I thought about it, even had saved styrofoam. Now that I have some ideas, I'll go for it.
