Homemade Cabinetry


Just when you thought this blog had been taken over by the woman-folk, let me swoop in and post something manly.

This weekend I completed a large cabinet to be our kitchen pantry.  Made entirely from 3/4″ sugar maple using hand saws, planes and chisels.  Lots of good practice chopping and cutting mortise and tenon joints (24 of them), and beveled frame and panel joints.  Next up — a joined oak chest to house the tools used to make these wooden things I’ve been spending my hobby time on.

On the travel front, we leave for Germany for a visit with Brent on Friday.  The three of us plan to spend a few days in Berlin, a day in Leipzig, and two days in Schmilka exploring Saxon Switzerland National Park on the Germany-Czech border.  We have not brushed up on our german one bit!  Hopefully having a native speaker at our side will keep us out of trouble.
