    If you have patience you can do it.

    Sweet!

    Where did you get the stencil for the bird head? I'm going to attempt to make a set with a buddy of mine this spring. Is it just a sticker or did you paint it?

    Entrance table I made for a friend. First time I ever did drawer slides.

    Thank you. I painted it. I made a stencil at work. I cut it out of 1/16 thick stainless steel. I used a water jet to cut it out. Took for ever to paint. I had to do one color at a time.

    Okay, so you won't use a CNC router, but you'll use the water jet at work to cut a stencil? I think there's some irony in there my friend.

    LOL. That was before I started routing. Now I put the stencil on the wood by transfer then I rout it out and paint. I'm also retired and don't have access to the water jet lol.

    This is all really great work @Mayfieldsportsfan. The dovetail work and stain on that chest are sharp.

    This post reminded me of my grandpa. He was a master carpenter who made the natural transition to woodworking after he retired. He made everything from coffee tables to display cases to dressers to buckboard benches and even a couple of cornhole boards of his own. He passed away in November of 2018 and took with him a world of woodworking knowledge. I wish I had spent more time doing projects with him. There was a lot to learn there.

    Thank you. I feel the same way about my father. He could do anything. I moved to Kentucky 30 years ago and lost a lot of time with him. It's the only thing I regret about moving here. He was my best friend. He died a week before my wife 6 years ago. My son and I woodwork together in winter.

    My son is just a junior in high school, but that's what we've done the past three or four years. I treasure the time we get to spend together probably more that what we've made.
