I have cut away back on my scroll saw projects in 2017. That's because I have taken on a lot of furniture making projects.
The biggest of these, so far, has been a large bookcase made out of quarter-sawn white oak and using traditional techniques such as mortise/tenon joints and lap joints. We started with the rough sawn oak shown in the first attached photo and, after about a total of 120 (wo)man hours, ended with the bookcase shown in the second photo.
One of the objectives of this was for me to pass on a lot of knowledge to my niece Jessica. Jessica is quick learner and a joy to work with. Two summers ago we built a small cabin together. Both the bookcase and the cabin are now hers. Jessica is getting married next autumn but we hope to be able to work on other projects after her marriage.
