Girls Dresser. Sorry, I messed up. Here is the ecabinets pic

Postby John J. Desmond » Sun, Dec 02 2007, 4:52PM

My girls needed new dressers so I designed this one and made two alike. It sure was fun. It is amazing how a standard base cabinet in ecabinets can become a dresser.

Are you going to challenge yourself designing the base detail John?

Looks alot like a Lonnie Byrd design on the foot. I made one similar that he published in a wood working magazine.

Very Nice work! I bet your girls are enjoying the dressors. I have a little girl that wants her room redone also.

BTW

The design on the base was not done in ecabinets. It was hand drawn by myself and a friend. I gave him a rough drawing of what I wanted and he drew what you see in the pictures. We just made half and mirror imaged it on the wood. The hardest part was sanding inside the detail. Not really hard but time consuming. Thanks for the encouragement.

Rick,
I assume you are telling me that my job is not yet done because the base was not designed on ecabinets. If that is the case then no, much to my discredit, I am not challenging myself with designing the base. I am not that familiar yet with the program. I am slowly learning by trial and error. I will eventually tackle doing something like that. Thanks for the nudge. I will have to find more time to play with the program so as to accomplish this goal.

Al,

I live in Joplin, Mo. I am very familiar with the St. Joseph area. My brother used to live there and I lived in Rock Port when I was younger. I visited your web sight and enjoyed the pictures of Maryville. I have passed there many times going to Rock Port. I still have a sister who lives there. They are farmers.

Rick,

I appreciate your encouragement. I am still learning and am enjoying it quite a bit. I told my wife that I need to learn how to do that as it will be beneficial when presenting to a customer.

John
