    I made this  aways back..and thought it was fun, However when I had to make the Diamonds i thought it was very wasteful and a pain in the butt

    The Maple lengths were angled then 45'd to give th visual of grain following all around the tip of the center...then by the time it was dyed the colors ya coulnt even appreciate the grain...doing Maple Diamonds like this produces exactly 50% waste,ya cut a section, then ya hafta flip the piece to get another section to match...I didnt realize that from looking at the prints until i was doing it

    just sharing that pain to Those of interest...but its a cool cabinet for the kids

    Damm Gene!!  wow!   are you like me whereu yor wife picks out a piece of furniture and you veto the purchase cause "you can make that,  and better"  and it's still not made!   Do you have some of your own stuff in your house is it stuff you can't afford, like most of us    ha
