Default Can't Detect, might as well build something.

With all the recent snow days, I've been doing some woodworking. Here are some recent projects, starting with today. The vanity is for 18" dolls, the horse barn is for the horses that go with the dolls. ( I have 3 daughters. ) The small cabinet is a charging station for our tablets.

Wow. That is great stuff. I wish I had the patience and skills to do something like that. Now, if you want something destroyed I'm your guy.

Don't even know what those are. Just a drill press, band saw, and table saw. I did buy a new biscuit joiner for this big cabinet.

I was wondering how you made the mirror frame for the vanity look so nice. Guess that is where the joiner came in

There are lots of you-tube vids on the Kreg stuff. Here is one example:

Actually, that is just a butt joint. Nothing but glue.

When I was younger, I loved to do woodworking, but, sadly that is a bygone hobby. Your stuff is excellent looking, keep up the nice work.

I've used the Kreg jigs a good bit . I really like them , simple to use , but you really need a good chop saw that makes a good square , 90 degree , cut , I love doing woodworking but just don't have a descent shop . Pretty nice looking work you done there .
