I have been a bit lax in my blogging for the last year or so. 
 as I finished the previous post about an art deco sideboard, out of
curiosity, I clicked on the 'stats' page … it has changed since the
last time I looked when it showed 30 day visits and you had to manually 
enter dates to view total page visits
here's where we are as of September 6th …

 one million, seven hundred seventy three thousand, eight hundred and forty five page views!!!

so, thank you readers.  I hope you have enjoyed your visits here,
and I am flattered by your attention.  I will keep writing occasionally, but
certainly not like I did from 2010 to 2014 when I was trying to share and document 
everything I did so I could remember the process and explain how we did things both 
to my employees who maybe weren't here for a particular project, or were 
working on something else, and also so as I aged, I could remember 
how things were done my own self.

as I look back through the 900 some blog posts, I am amazed and honored
at the number and variety of complex and rewarding projects our clients
have allowed us to create … 
Onward we go!

a nice walnut sideboard

we recently finished this mirrored art deco styled bar cabinet, and 
today we got a confirmation of delivery and a nice note... 
this new cabinet was a 'simplified' version of the original cabinet below that we made for another client way, way back in 2009
they are both stained/painted pieces, one with gray mirrors with a back, and the 
original with an open back ... both were fun and challenging projects.
cad  comparison
early stages ... mortises tenons and tapers on the cnc
the openings were filled in with walnut ply, allowing spaces for the mirrors
and some 'speed racks' on the doors ..
installed the grey mirrors and sent it on its way ...
