One of my classmates, Tim, finished his second project--a wall cabinet made out of walnut and bay laurel. He cranked through the project after completing this complicated sideboard. Tim's intention was to work quickly and in solid wood to recuperate from the challenge of his last piece. While he enjoyed the experience and the cabinet looks great, Tim feels that there were a number of small details that got away from him in his hurry. One of the things that I like about making furniture is the intimate relationship you develop with each piece. Most of us will never see the things that Tim sees, but in the end, we can all enjoy the cabinet.
