BTWheezy,

Nice to have you back.  When I didn't see any posts for a while, was worried for your health; thought the COVID-19 might have got you.  As another amateur woodworker I have really enjoyed watching the difficult project you have undertaken.  I'm doing the same - been building a ManCave for over 2 years and now have the time to finally move onto the cabinetry, columns and trim work.  Not looking forward to the crown molding as this will be a first for me!  Love your shop!

Looks great! I do love a good build along complete w photos of techniques. (photos are fun as well - nice use of light).

I was wondering if this was going to be a completely tailed tool build. Nice to see the old hand tools pop up. The flush cut Japanese saw and a well loved quality pocket plane are among my favorites (although a few years ago I went down a deep rabbit hole refurbishing old hand planes - so as they say I have a few sets). 
 

Dare I ask where you ordered your Spanish cedar and what it cost per BF delivered?

Hey Rhinoww - thanks for the kind words.  I mostly use modern power tools, but love the old school hand tools when possible. I’ve read about guys and hand planes (in particular), and that dangerous rabbit hole...kinda like Cuban cigars.

I live in the Seattle area, where we have a fantastic specialty lumber store called Crosscut Hardwoods within a relatively short drive (45 min with normal traffic, 25 min with coronavirus traffic).  Crosscut has an amazing range of lumber and specialty plywood *in stock*, and if you need something they don’t have, most likely they can get it.  I think I’m paying $7/board foot for Spanish cedar...but that doesn’t include delivery.

I’m very fortunate to live a few miles away from the Popular Woodworking old offices/shop. Great access to the team there when they (and I) were diving deeply into woodworking and hand tools. I was also active for some time at a great woodworking forum that like here was nothing but supportive and educational. I have slowed down on woodworking due to work and having made a number of the bigger pieces I needed for my home but still really enjoy the shop time when I can get it. 
almost done making a very fast shaker style desk as I had an immediate need for another desk in the house due to kids etc being home for the foreseeable future. 
it’s been fun to watch your project move along and I very much appreciate the thought and skills needed for your various angles. 
 

looking forward to seeing the finished product.

That looks very smart. Great going. Certainly was a good day.

And it was Cube, not T.

@ha_banos - yep, it sure was Cube, not T.  So I guess it was a decent day on average!  My 90’s rap game isn’t super strong...alas.

Dayum.  Shame on you Wheezy.  Get back into quarantine. 

You've insulted an entire generation, and the entire world. 

There is no place for rap bigotry.

I would have thought it would have been the humidification device! ;)

Awesome work, enjoying following along.
