Hello all. I have completed the Christmas projects and am now working on the dresser that Kelsey and Steve asked me to build. I saw a small cabinet in the background of a picture and I asked Karen if she thought that it would be ok to build for the kid's Christmas. Although small, the darn thing has a shelf to hold the cement top, a shelf for the writing board, a shelf for the drawer, a shelf shelf, and a bottom shelf that is fixed. I used 180deg. hinges to make fitting the flush door more manageable.
My common name is McKay Sleight. Moku means wood, saku means to make, and sensei is teacher. I taught woodworking for 31 years. I retired in May of 2010.
