Project Update... Seriously!

I know it's said in woodworking groups that "without pictures, it didn't happen", but I am here to say that I actually did work on that Oak dresser that I started oh so long ago for Violet.

Something had to be done. A week or so ago while family and freinds were at the house, I mentioned the dresser I was working on. My wife piped up that I wasn't working on a dresser, I just had a pile of wood in the basement. Well the zing sounded better being there and I did truly find it funny.

I also saw the postings of this guy's work at the LumberJocks site. Mark is today what I would like to be as a woodworker... talented! Seriously though, Mark does have some fantastic projects that he's done and seeing those is a nice reminder that I need to get my butt in gear if I'm ever going to finish some of my own.

I appreciate the feedback on what I should enter in the LumberJocks 2006 Summer Woodworking Contest, though I still haven't made a decision on what I might like to submit. I'll make sure to post my decision here first.

Hey Darryl:
Martin at Lumberjocks alerted me to your note about my work. What an honor it was to read your comments. Let me know how I can help you.

Thanks for the offer. I know I've still got a lot to learn and I'm sure one day would be great to pick your brain a little.

And the truth had to be told, it was reading your post on the Maloof chair that got my butt back into the workshop to get moving on the dresser. Thanks for the inspiration!
