Several of you members wanted to see a better view of these 2 highboys I finished for my wife this past April.  Making them at the same time was a big time savings. All together, they took about 7 months in my spare time after work, stretched out over a year. I bought the FWW issue #117 new in 1996 and have waited to make these with a passion since that day.  14 years latter I was finally in a position to take on the challenge.  There were times when I thought I would never finish them. Dimensions are 88" high, 42" wide and 23" deep.  See my web page for further details,

Thanks for viewing.
