It has been a while since I've posted any real woodworking content. But that doesn't mean I haven't been making some sawdust. I finally got around to creating a new video theme for the this series, which means I'll be able to crank out some video a lot faster. Basically, this next project focuses more on my design and construction techniques rather than outlining a "how to" for a project. The design is the mahogany wine secretary I mentioned earlier, and I start by describing how I use Google Sketchup not just to design a project, but also as a shop tool. In the next few episodes I will go through lumber prep, layout, and referential measuring techniques. Enjoy, and as always I look forward to your comments, questions, and suggestions.
