    In response to your request for opinions on a series building basic, no-frills furniture using minimal tools, I would like to see just the opposite.  Having seen the dining table, chest of drawers and shop cabinets, I would like to see a more sophisticated furniture project such as a classically-inspired side board with some complexities such as a bow front with curved doors to match, turned and reeded legs, inlays, etc., a tall case clock, breakfront or game table.  My concern, having seen the number of episodes required to complete the jewelry box build, is at 77 I might not make to the end of the series.

    Yes, I agree. the idea of youtube videos on basics with limited tools is okay. but here in the member section a new project with 'something special' would be great.

    I'll second a tall case clock or some other more ornate item.  Maybe something federal with string inlay.  Something out of the ordinary with new challenges to overcome.

    I suggest we kill two birds with one stone.

    While many of the subscribers are very talented woodworkers looking for greater challenges there are surely members with less skills and/or less tools.  Perhaps we can build a few simply constructed projects from economical woods (e.g., end table. book case, etc from pine) and then use these projects to learn banding, stringing, and inlay techniques.  This would accelerate the construction of the piece allowing us to put it to good use for learning/practicing the skills to add distinctive features.

    My guild has a summer fund raiser so I know where the pieces could be put to good use.

    Thanks for asking.
