Thanks so much! Although I still have one bedroom to go, I've built all the furniture on our home. Sometimes it's difficult to come up with unique designs for each room and mtairymd is a huge help when it comes to changing things up and developing the plans!
Thank you for viewing!
lol, thanks..As for the "Festool collection", I actually don't have that many pieces of green.. Just the necessities.
Looks functional to me and that's the important part! I like the clamp stop!
Thanks!My initial designs are done in Sketchup but, mtairymd then puts together the final plans in CAD,,
Thank you so much for the kind words!

Very much appreciated!
Thanks! I wanted it to look like one gorgeous slab.. Thank you so much for the kind words!
Thank you.. I spent a fair amount of time looking at it and changing things around..
Thanks!It's actually plenty convenient sitting at the desk however, the fact is that I don't get in those drawers very often. That cabinet is actually faced so it's the first thing you see walking through the door to the room instead of the side of the cabinet.
Nicely done! I like the way you inset the feet and splined the corners of the top!
Construction costs depend on a lot of different factors. Species of lumber and drawer glides being the 2 big expenses on this one. I used fairly high end material and glides so, the price could be reduced significantly by changing those items. Yes, you could buy something similar cheaper but, it also won't last nearly as long. Could you buy something cheaper if you used less expensive materials? That's certainly debatable.

Thanks!I like the oil based Arm-R-Seal on darker woods as I find it "pops" the grain better. From there, I prefer the water based finished as it doesn't yellow, has no VOCs, and I really like the look. This means that I don't have to leave it in the shop for a week or 2 to finish off gassing.
I would have to put it in my spreadsheet to see exactly what the price would be. If I had to guess, I would think somewhere around 8k but, that's a bit of a guess.
You certainly could although, it's not top heavy or "tippy". I don't have small children around and am not in an earthquake prone area.
Yes, the apron has been claimed.
Thanks! Lumber costs are going to depend on where you live. African Mahogany averages about $7.00 per BF where I live. The drawer glides I chose to use were a really expensive part of the build as well. I left a link to them in the tools and material step so, maybe you can do some cost comparison and find them a little cheaper. All told, I was around $2500 in materials and around 80 hours in labor.
Thank you! Merry Christmas to you as well.

Thanks so much! Much credit goes to mtairymd for his work on the plans and animation! It really is his work that gives what I do so much life!

Ultimately, altering the design would be fairly simple but would depend on the weight of the top. The two center panels could be made taller and you might need to install one on each side to support the weight. I would put the ones on the sides in stopped sliding dovetails for strength. Also, you would need to know this early on to account for that joinery in the face and back frame. Hope that helps?

Thank you for the kind words! It would be pretty easy to modify the plans to fit your needs. Feel free to have your "hubby" drop me a note if he has questions. I'd be happy to help.

Thanks!No, leaving them oversized when gluing in the strips gives you a little wiggle room to get everything lined up nicely.

Thanks! Depending on the chosen material for the back portion of the frame, the wire could definitely be hung there. If you decide to use plywood or partical board, I don't think that would hold up to the weight of the frame and canvas. You should be fine with hardwoods though.
Thanks, I'm very fortunate to have the shop that I do but, it certainly doesn't take a shop like that to produce these frames. Provided you have flat/square lumber and a way to cut rabbets and clean miters, anyone can make these.
Thank you, I'm sure three will be more requests as well.
Thank you for the kind words!

Solid tip for stuff like this! Being the opposite end, I didn't really feel the need and haven't had any issues with this. The good part is that the blocks can be removed and those chamfers added if it were an issue. Thanks for the well thought out comment! It's much appreciated!
Thank you very much!

Thank you. I've had these jigs in my shop for many years. The new table saw forced me to build new ones because they are useful and I do use them.

I'm still new to how all this works so, I added a set of plans in the final step.. Apologies for any inconvenience and I really appreciate the feedback.
Hmm.. Thanks for the heads up.. I'll ask my web person to take a look at that and see if I can fix it. In all honesty, I'm really not interested in anyone's private info.
