Very nice. Looks like you use a lot of red cedar, it's beautiful wood to work with.
When I first started I would use any wood I could get my hands on. I found a supplier for the red cedar about 100 miles from me. Since then it's about all I use, and it's easier to sell product made with such a distinctive, and popular wood.

Nice work. I have made a lot of Desks and other furniture out of all kinds of wood. I love working with Ceder, Redwood, and Purple Heart wood. Have a band sawmill and a 3ft planer for cutting up trees. Have my own trees. When i retired back to my farm i build a regular Farm house. Build a 3 story Log Cabin in the woods using White oak logs. Run my sawmill 6 mos. out of the year when it is warm and dry. Dry my own lumber. I sell mostly lumber from my Mill. That is my money maker. Raise a lot of animals. I hve more Pigs then any other animal. There is a good market for Cedar and also Red wood Furniture. I made a big writing Desk for myself. Got a lot of lumber from company that imports different things from China. They let me have the wood from the Crates that the different things are shipped in. Keep up the good work. The table and benches look nice. Love the log beds you make.

Buying a new office chair is a big deal. You yourself prepare the necessary chair that will help you in your future work. There are several reasons to change your office chair. This is either because of back problems or because your old chair broke. These two reasons are very common. At the moment, I know of only one site where you can order a high-quality office chair. I personally use one of these chairs for work and I love it. I love that I can order the chair I want. In addition to chairs, there are other office furniture. Even my friend uses their furniture and doesn't complain.

Looks gorgeous and well-polished! I wonder if you have sold any of these. I've never got far than shelves and garden tables, but lately, I have put my hands on a queen bed frame project. My DIY projects take inspiration from the best deals on bedroom furniture in Australia, so I'm currently working on making a bed Frame in solid wood antique design. My master bedroom desperately needs one. I've already bought a mattress there https://paydaydeals.com.au/collections/bedroom . It already fits the frame, but I'm stuck at fixing the rails as I can't find appropriate rail hangers.

Very nice. I am nearly finished building my retirement cabin, and I would like to make my own furniture. One of my neighbors has a small sawmill, and we have plenty of cedar around here. What would I need in the way of tools, to get started.
