Thanks Greg, love the attitude buddy. I look at it like this, I get days of pleasure, I get practice, I get to use the tools I love, I get a small amount of lumber left over for my own projects, and it costs me nothing, and hopefully I have made someone happy. I think thats a good deal. 😉
Agreed thats the first goal to get coast of materials, and if time not a factor and you do make some money on top thats a bonus.
Nothing beats the satisfaction of hand made woodwork.
So ken may the orders keep coming just not too many as you do not want to keep making DVD storage units.
As a hobby even as a professional you want to make different things to challenge your self.
Grats, Ken on your first commission! I think that would be a thrill for anyone. I have no illusions about being able to make a living as a woodworker any time soon, but even one sale would be a very cool thing.
As for the plan, I don’t know what I’d do with myself if everything actually went according to plan! But solving problems and finding fixes for errors is very satisfying in its own way.
Anyway, would love to see pics of the finished product.
A little up date, housing dados 🙂 all done, shelves planed and cut to size.
Everything has stayed nice and flat, shelves are a nice tight fit. I should have it glued up tomorrow. So far really happy the way it is all going. 😉
