Managed to fit the base to the cabinet today. It now looks complete-will fit the rails on the weekend and then I can glue it up. Also receieved my copy of Good Woodworking today-the Maloof chair got 10 pages! I'm pleased, although a little disapointed with the pics. Dark green background, dark brown chair..,:( My pics came out o.k., but you can't mess up with workshop pics too much. Guess it is difficult to really show a piece of furniture off in a picture-it is something that needs to be seen in person. Nevermind, can't moan. Much ;) Also placed a little hand saw order today-sorry Mike, I've gone for the Canuck!
