Walking a Fine Line

In this episode, I really had to make some difficult choices around stringing for the drawers. In a lot of cases, it pays to do some mock-ups and experimentation to really come up with the best solution to any woodworking problem. In this episode, I put the finishing touches on the drawers, fix my little snafu from episode two, and get the final finish and hardware in place. In the end, this project was far more work than I expected it to be. I always seem to introduce either changes in direction (via mistakes) or additional complexity that seems simple in the design phase, but a lot more effort in practice. But that's what makes woodworking fun and challenging, and why I keep coming back for more!

I find that your videos are very helpful, not just because you show what you do, but you also tell why you are doing it that way. Your wood has a very nice appearance, and I feel that is only enhanced when you rub the oil on the wood. The plugs are a creative and effective way to solve your problem, and I don’t believe I have seen that done before. Your finished product is very nice; thank you for sharing!
