This is what happens when you try to be careful.
I build furniture some times in Kit form starting from a photo of a piece.
I'll make 30 sometimes 60 kits to teach a class on construction and finish.
Its done on a get together called a mini fun day once a year for a local club. Sometimes it gets a little hectic especially when it gets close to the fun day date.( The day before that is )
This was done some years back. The prototype was cut and assembled (You can see all the little pieces) Finished and antiqued it. While showing my wife the finished piece i dropped it and with my big foot crushed it on the floor. My heart stopped . So at midnight I had to build another one to have it ready for the morning .which my wife says is every time. I donate a piece to the club to raffle off and as appreciation for letting me build for them.
I still don't have this piece in my collection. I will have to get around to building one to keep for myself..
I keep all my prototypes.
Thanks for letting me share
This piece is a shaker sewing desk. ( Or was..... )
