    After a long time and some sideprojects in between, the frame is done. Wood for the drawers is ready as well.

    Fantastic, Manuel. That’s a great start! And I love the little “dutchman” on one side.

    I have to hand it to you, you are persisting in resawing those boards.
    Even with a good saw, it’s still a lot of work.

    But isn’t the beauty of hand tools? Hard work means quality 🙂

    Very nice, I particularly like the butterfly to fix the crack (or at least that’s what it appeared to be in the picture).

    Some folks might toss that board but it’s fine like that and adds a ton of character in my opinion.

    Coincidentally as I drove home this evening I was picturing how I wanted to deal with some true 1″ x 12″ to 1″ x 15″ 100 year old ponderosa pine 10′ to 15′ planks I have. I need to resaw sections of them to 3/8″ or so for cabinet door panels and the prospect of doing it with a rip saw had me pondering wimping out and taking them to a sawyer.

    Now that I see your posts it helps to realize it’s not work, it’s just part of the process.
