so exciting when you upload

    3x3Custom - Tamar - January 25, 2019

    That’s awesome to hear!

Jim Bolton - January 25, 2019

Amazing work Tamar – I’ll never tire of hearing you say “drawer” LOL

    Kayinfso Here - January 25, 2019

    Me too!!!!!

    jamsomito - January 28, 2019

    @3x3Custom – Tamar Do you reference drawerings when making your draws? Norm Abram would always call them that. No better way to succeed than copying the masters! lol, nice piece as always. 🙂

    3x3Custom - Tamar - January 28, 2019

    jamsomito ha! We must have grown up in the same area

    BenjaminGoose - August 13, 2019

    I’ve never understood, do Americans not usually pronounce it the way Tamar does?

Alvaro Suarez Isaza - January 25, 2019

Good work Tamar…¡Very nice!

    3x3Custom - Tamar - January 25, 2019

    Thanks so much!!

Make Something - January 25, 2019

Beautiful. desk! And great no-jointer tricks!

    3x3Custom - Tamar - January 25, 2019

    Thanks so much! A jointer would be really nice though….

    Harley Haynes - January 28, 2019

    David, I was thinking of your style the whole time she was building this. This is a very cool and clean build. Good Job Tamar!

    3x3Custom - Tamar - January 28, 2019

    Harley Haynes thanks!

Kortt Wulfe - January 25, 2019

I like the way you build with less measuring. I do the same thing and usually come out with a better result. I have a visual disability so trying to see measurements on a tape or rule is a pain for me. I like to use story sticks as well. Great project!!

    3x3Custom - Tamar - January 25, 2019

    Thanks so much! The less math I have to use the better!

Hassan Al-Mosawi - January 25, 2019

Thanks for showing how and sharing that, well done

D Scott - January 25, 2019

Great desk, beautifully done. Just a suggestion, Daylight LED lights around that mirror, that come on when you open the lid, would make it glamorous.

    3x3Custom - Tamar - January 25, 2019

    Thanks! I might have to do that!

Алексей Чезганов - January 25, 2019

Очень красиво!!!

Dryss Boulmédaïs - January 25, 2019

For the people who give thumbs down… can you please comment and tell us what you do not like ? Just to make sure you do not come just to denigrate for free.

    3x3Custom - Tamar - January 25, 2019

    You can’t please everyone….

KSFWG - January 25, 2019

Beautiful vanity, Tamar! I’m sure your daughter will treasure it always.

BTW — I counted 19 (plus or minus one) times you said drawer…. 😉 lol

    3x3Custom - Tamar - January 25, 2019

    Hahaha! Thanks so much!!

Tolyn 80 - January 25, 2019

А ты красивая Тамара!!!!))))

Yusuf Masron - January 25, 2019

You were routing freehand to make the notch for the L bracket, very steady hands. I would’ve mess that up. That’s a very fancy switch for a router lift.

    3x3Custom - Tamar - January 25, 2019

    I love that new router lift

Omer Asif - January 26, 2019

drilling and screwing was mildly satisfying.

Алексей Скибин - January 27, 2019


Michael Perez - January 27, 2019

You’re such a breath of fresh air to watch. Love seeing the progress of your career and projects alike! Keep up the great work

    3x3Custom - Tamar - January 28, 2019
