Re: Arts and Crafts Inspired Sideboard

Padauker is right about "design by committee". You are going to make some great pieces and some not so great pieces. The more you make the more refined you designing abilities will become.

Sometimes what you design in a CAD program doesn't look the same once the piece is completed.

Keep on designing and building!
