I was pulling moving a dresser for my wife and noticed this. I don't think I've ever seen. Dovetails cut into (veneered) particle board before.

+Peter van Rens agreed. The backs are dovetailed too, so it may have been to just run all materials through the same machine process.

I think that using a powerstrip is my favorite ad-hoc push stick ever.
 
Ignore the mess... Finishing up some projects so that I can clean it up. We de-rusted these metal chairs but it left some holes. So I made some custom cedar armrests with a dark cherry stain.

I was very confused at the lack of beer in the making of a "drunken cutting board".  Aside from that, great project.

Toddler table to go along with the chair I recently posted.  All MDF once again, sealed with several coats of lacquer.  Construction is all pocket screw (MDF really doesn't warrant proper joinery) filled and sanded with putty.  Colors were left overs from previous painting that fit the primary color theme for my son.

Not wrong, but I recommend folks look into using the lineman's splice as its called for something like this.  Make did a nice article on it, and its part of our NASA soldering standards:  http://makezine.com/2012/02/28/how-to-splice-wire-to-nasa-standards/  Good solder jobs start with good physical connections -- then good electrical connections.

Good fix though, I'm sure your friend appreciated saving a few hundred dollars.
 
Barely constitutes woodworking since it was done with MDF, but it was a scrap project for my 2 year old son. Came out okay. Sealed the MDF with a couple coats of lacquer then regular ol' paint. He loves it.

Great job! It's something about children and chairs. I have a five year old granddaughter and if it's a little chain it's like a magnet she has to sit on it and try it out. Have a great day!

Interesting...
 
Elon Musk says SpaceX has pinned down what probably caused the company's rocket to explode minutes after liftoff.
After reviewing data from the failed mission to the International Space Station, Musk says it looks like a two-foot-long metal bar called a strut failed.

Great project!  Games are clearly your passion :)  Careful with the use of that NASA logo, they protect that thing.
