This much delayed project marked the next phase of my woodworking experience. From now on, for every piece I make, I will try and give quality the highest priority as much as possible.
Over the past couple of years, I have come to realize that it is a total waste of time to build furniture that is not truly functional, no matter how much output you can produce per month or how much costs you are able to save, because you will not be using it afterwards.
I want to make furniture that actually used by someone. I also want every one of them to last a lifetime. In this manner, I really need to focus more on designing. Also, I have to be patient. I must not rush. It could also means less output per month and high production costs. But, it’s worth it.
For this desktop toolbox, I spent more than twice the time I normally take to finish projects of similar scale. I made real sure the drawers did not drag the case along when sliding. In the end, I have got a very nice desktop toolbox that will fit my need in the shop. It’s well worth the efforts.
