Earlier this year, I thought it would be fun to let the viewers/readers vote on my next project. A few life events delayed the start of the project a few months, but I've finally launched the tool chest series. I thought I'd try a twist on the traditional tool chests you typically see, and "step it up" a bit. This design features a unique horizontally-stepped front, some unexpected design challenges, and my new favorite species of wood - butternut! However, my new love affair with white walnut had a bit of a rocky start as you'll see.
I also made some investments in my production equipment over the past few months, so I'm happy to announce there is now an HD-quality download available. I upped the production quality a bit, and worked in a new opening (my apologies to any of you surf music fans out there). As always, your comments, feedback, criticisms, stock picks, and general musings are welcome and appreciated. And thanks to all those folks that have encouraged me in this little endeavor over the past few years. I do this purely out of personal enjoyment (and a perhaps a mild case of OCD) and as long as you guys keep watching, I'll keep doing it!
