The furniture started with the entertainment cabinet to fit the new big TV and the I got tired of the hand me down furniture so i started to make some mission furniture that looks an awful lot like Stickley. Go figure I grew up where Stickley was made.

-- My wife says I have to many tools. I say there is always more to add.

Hi westend,

If you have built all of the great looking furniture you wife should be encouraging you to buy more tools so you can build her more great furniture. Have couple of pieces in our house. When I retire I think I will be building more for our snowbird house. Keep up the great work. There must be something in the water where you live.
Maybe try some quarter sawn white oak with full figure, looks great in that style of furniture.

Thanks for posting. jb
