Default This year's last project

Hi, guys.
This morning I finished my last woodworking project for 2017.
It was an angular corner cabinet for a stereo equipment. It took long time to be accomplished due to our national situation.
It also has several features
* My firsts raised panels (not the bests, BTW).
*All materials, except consumables (glue, screws, varnish, nails, etc) were recycled.
*Too much time to finish.
*Some repairs in the walls were necesaries. Local workers were asking huges quantities of money, not including materials, to make the job. I tackled them by myself with my wife as a helper.

In the mean time, Happy new year for you all.
Best wishes for you and your relatives, wherever you are!!!

Nice looking cabinet, Alexis. I have used both of the short cuts that you noted. Silicone instead of space balls and epoxy to hold the magnets. Both work well with no problem.

Very nice Alexis and a happy new year to you and your family too. I hope the situation there starts improving soon.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Good job, buddy. You are a brave soul taking on those angles. I hate that stuff. My head has a hard time with all of those angles. I know, it's just me. Great job.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
