Now that I know i can crank out these furniture pieces pretty quickly I’m gonna start focusing more on my craftsmanship. More dovetail joinery, less kreg tools, and more desirable woods(less poplar). I am still very excited about woodworking as I climb the experience ladder. Here’s a full bedroom set that I just completed and I’m sure it won’t be my last. Ill probably have this room completely re-done by Christmas using cherry or mahogany. It’s just so rewarding seeing people faces when they are able to view these items in person!! Ask questions and or critique!

Great work!! Isn’t it great how your confidence builds when you’re finishing a project? I’m by no means a “Norm” level woodroker but it’s neat when you can answer folks’ questions somewhat intelligently based on your experience in the shop.

Those are great pieces and you should be very satisfied with your work!

The tapered drawers on the chest are really interesting. The craftsmanship looks amazing. WOW. How long did it take you?

I,m sick of people ripping off my designs!! Just kidding! Great minds must think alike, the bedside looks similar to ones I designed a few years back for a suite called we produced called the skyview, the tapered legs really set it off well, although mine were a little simpler in the construction. Really sweet looking bed, the panels look simple and very nicely done and the dark colour goes real nice with the modern style. Very well done.

Considering that have a day job, the nightstand took about 3 days, the bed was a week and the dresser was done first it took 3 weeks. I should start monitoring my hours because its hard tell from just memory.
