John finished the drawer boxes and is making the drawer fronts. That means he is nearly through with the drawers. It's astonishing that 50% of the time making the drawers is devoted to plugging the screw holes with walnut dowels, adding a walnut strip to the top edge of the drawer, and preparing for/applying finish to the drawers.
Here is what they look like with the walnut strips and dowels and the finish applied. Pretty snazzy, huh? I hope he lets me use them!
The project time line had to slip a little because our marmoleum guy hurt his shoulder. I feel bad for him but there is a good side to the slip. It helped John feel less pressure.
