Phil, I just spent an hour browsing your web page. You are a terrific woodworker. Thanks for sharing those great projects with us, particularly the step-by-step photographs.

I’m curious about the Krenov Inspired Cabinet, to my eye it looks top heavy. Is this a concern, or just an illusion?

Also note that you frequently use mock-ups before proceeding to the actual project. What timber do you use for mock-ups, and is the joinery you use to make these identical to what the project will involve?

HI Don
Thanks for the kind words!
The Krenov cabinet-in the flesh it is surprisingly tall. I agonised over the proportions (making mock-ups, as you noticed) I just used off-cuts of pine and ply and tacked them together with the nail-gun. It is surprising how different projects look in 3-D compared to a sketch or plan.
I don’t know about you but I find i’m never satisfied with my projects (regardless of how well they come out) So another Krenov style cabinet is on the drawing board for the coming year.
Best regards

I like your planes. Have a small collection of wooden planes. I would like to restor them and display on LJ.
