Default Wives brother-in-law's work

David is what I would call an accomplished wood worker. The pics below will show some of his work. He has been at it for 10 years now. His garage doubles as a work shop and frankly is not that elaborate. He has the basic power tools but not always the biggest of best. The one thing he has that I may not have is talent. About 75-80% of the solid wood furniture in his house he has made. It is all white oak, almost no plywood; all pieces are finished on all sides. His favorite finis is Tung Oil and Wipe on Poly 3 -5 coats as required.All coats are gloss except the last coat that is satin. All of his drawer glides are full extension Bloum. On the small drawers he uses a side tongue and grove oak, very smooth and low maintance. I just thought some might enjoy seeing some very fine wood working.

He has a few of his early work around perhaps to remind himself that he has not always been so acomplished. (I will contiue the pics on additional replys.) but first I will have to re-size the pics, someone changed the camera settings for me without telling me so!! "Wife's" sorry for poor spelling!!!

Jerry, the grain matching on the dresser front is a lesson in itself. Cutting the boards and keeping them aligned presents a beautiful pattern. Tell him to come join us!

Tell David that I'm envious of his talents, beautiful work.
