Arts & Crafts Hall Cabinet

Furnished content.

Arts & Crafts Hall CabinetI made this hall cabinet as a donation to auctioned off during the 2019 Reno County Cancer Council Roundup in February. Hopefully it'll bring a good price to help support all the work the Council does to help cancer victims in our area. I have a personal connection with cancer so I was pretty motivated. For the most part, I followed the plan described in the September 2018 issue of Wood magazine but I did take a few minor liberties to suit my own style. It was made entirely of QS white oak, so I did not use white oak ply for the shelf, and upper/lower panels as the article described. (It's incredibly difficult to buy white oak ply around here without ordering and I was reluctant to purchase something of that $$$ without seeing it first. But decent quality QS white oak rough-cut lumber is easy to come by.) Correction, I used 1/4” red-oak ply for the back. After staining, I finished it with 3 to 4 coats of polyurethane.

The Work/Life Balance of a Pro

Furnished content.



The notion of work-life balance seems to imply that work is, by definition, drudgery. It may well be, for people who hate their jobs.
