So, how many duplicates of one project have you built at one time?

I'm finishing NINE of one for Christmas gifts this year... I'm ready to see them disappear....

Everything I do is unique :-D . That's a nice way of saying that I'm not sure I can do anything repeatable.

When I make my can crushers, I usually make 5 at a time. I have made about 28 so far but, not all at once. (Obvously, I made only 3 once. :-D )

My dear friend JimH (his picture has been on here before) makes 60 boxes every year for Christmas presents. I have had the pleasure of working beside him in his shop in 2006 and 2008 for 7 to 14 days putting them together from start to finish. None were made in 2007 and 2009. His health has kept him out of his shop all this year.

edit: I found this picture for the 2008 build at Jim's.
After stain and before poly.

And here everything I have not shown before. My rolling hardware storage cart, 4 sides with 128 drawers, 64 short and 64 long drawers, all with dado sides and bottoms.
It's had 2-3 lacquer coats and most drawers have labels on them since this picture.

I've made multiple componets for single projects quite often, but only once did I make 2 of the same thing, and even then, due to space limitations, they weren't exact copies.

I'm human, therefore I can't make exact duplicates :D :D :D

I did make 50 of one Christmas ornament last year......I understand the soldiers did like them :wink:

Hey Tom,

One year, I made 20 identical boxes for Christmas gifts.
