    Just thought I'd share a few photos after we delivered the furniture. Not all set up, but you get the idea...

    I like jobs like this between kitchens and other "finer" furniture. You can get the parts cut out, assembled and finished quickly, and it will stand up to the beating the kids will give it year after year. Plus there is $$ to be made, which is in large part thanks to the Shopbot cutting the shaped and rabbeted parts.

    Very nice, my wife teaches second grade and would love a few of these. Now I need to try and make this one for her!

    Andrew,
    What are those countersunk cups for? Pocket stuff the kids have? (Nice!)
    Are those Lamello connectors for the BB?
    Great looking job!
    Thought you were in Ontario?
    Quebecois on the arch ?
    Translation please?

    That long table (two sections of 48") with 16 stainless steel cups is an art center, and the cups are for each of the kids' crayons.

    Timmins is along the Quebec/Ontario border. There is almost a 50/50 mix of French and English speaking here, unfortunatley I grew up with two Croatian immigrant parents (and I can understand them just fine, lol) and I don't speak a lick of French. My son is in all French school as is my other son (whos still in daycare but all French). My wife is bilingual.

    The text loosely means "take my hand and together we'll grow"...

    Ah..crayons
    Still have large Canadian French population around the mill towns(town next to mine is Biddeford and they still have a La Kermesse festival) and our northern county has a large Acadian population. Bilingual is much easier at your kids age to pick up.
    That's a Fine sentiment on the arch!
    Thanks Andrew,
