Professional woodworker since 1978 I love a challenge and rarely build the same thing twice.

This is my version of the Walnut bedside of the third session to start working with wood, are made with recycled wood pallets and a few modifications in the action in the original plans to meet the needs of my client, my wife.
Nice work from a pallet!
I have done a few cuts like this in the past. The idea of doing it in a small production run for the parts to a single piece of furniture seems plausible for an experienced confidant craftsman. I would use a heavy blade with a large stabilizer.
I would not recommend a tired or inexperienced woodworker even consider the attempt. Light passes and constant attention is required. If you have lots of tenons to cut, set up and do it in a more controlled manner. Even as a pro tip with tons of cautions it could still be tempting to an over confidant hobbyist.
In my shop techniques like this are labeled
" Watch this but don't try it! "
Years ago I traded new counter tops for fill dirt and grading work with a neighbor. We both had equipment and skills that the other needed. Bill passed away several years ago and I think of him when I walk thru my backyard.
Very nice work!
I built something similar for a neighbor. I increased the depth of the shelves by cutting the drywall out and put shelves between the studs. 1/4 thick sliding doors in aluminum tracks keeps contents from falling on to the stairs.
Very nice appearance with the box joints!
A desk had to go through a door on the side of a hall and turn 90 degrees to enter the room, but the dolly made it too tall. We put it on its end on a movers blanket then dragged it down the hall, twisted through the door and tipped it back on its feet. Blankets will slide on hardwood and carpeted floors.
I currently use shelf liner as mats, comes in a roll at Costco, works the same as the stuff I bought at a wood show. I would like to try the cookies!
I replace brushes and cords, but by the time a portable tool needs bearings replacement is usually the way to go. I keep buying the same cordless drills because the kit is cheaper than 2 batteries, so I have 6 drills and only 7 working batteries. Stationary shop machines are worth putting bearings or even a new motor in. When my 1/2 hp motor in my bandsaw burned up the replacement was out of stock, but a 1hp was available at the same price. Learning to repair and maintain your tools is essential to earn a living doing woodwork. Old appliance or computer cords often work well on my routers.
Definitely the most creative as well as attractive and functional bookcase. Hey EVAN007 just give them a few hints and construction details, let them figure out sizes and layout by themselves. Too many people just follow plans when they should learn how to lay out a project to fit the needs of the space it goes into. I would be quite interested in a few more details of the construction !
Very nice work.
Nice to see underneath finished and smooth. I always do it and few people seem to appreciate it, or at least they never comment on it. I like the lines and details of the peice.
Interesting finish, inspires me to experiment with similar combinations.
