Continuing on with assembly of the sides of the chest of drawers. Here are all of the individual parts, kind of an exploded view. Next up is to glue the splines into the panel.

I don't know why, but there's always some level of apprehension before bandsawing shapely legs. I don't know why, but I'm glad when it's over, successful and time for cleaning things up with hand tools.
