It's all in the details.
Eric's been on an odd woodworking binge lately - building things we don't necessarily need or have room for, but yet he feels compelled to build it anyway. He considers it a personal challenge. Whatever. It keeps him out of trouble and it gives me an excuse to rearrange furniture or sell off past projects to make room for new stuff.
Last week he completed another Krenov-style cabinet with lots of interesting details. The outside is cherry, the inside is white oak, and the drawer pulls are made of walnut. Oh but wait, the porn-like woodworking terms get even better. The veneers are hand-sawn and the drawers are hand-dovetailed. Yeah baby. That's what I'm talkin' about.
It looks gorgeous. And for now, this little beauty is residing in our bedroom. I'm just not sure if it's true purpose in life is to hold the bingo card collection that I bought at a flea market six years ago, or if there's a higher calling in another room or another home. Time will tell.
