Chest of Drawers, Deconstructed


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. 

Starting to Assemble


The legs of the chest of drawers are shaped, now it's time for some assembly. Here I'm pre-gluing the slip tenons into the legs.

Bandsaw Anxiety


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. 

That "Just Right" Feeling


A sweet fitting sliding dovetail. It's a snug fit, but let's you know it will go all the way home. Too tight for water based glued, so I'll use either polyurethane or epoxy.
