Well let’s try this again – posted this earlier and it went to electron oblivion. Arrgh!
Made a dovetailed box to practice long lines of dovetails and ended up with a 12″ tall x 12″ wide x 11 1/4″ deep box. Decided to make it into a small chest of drawers. I used 18th century drawer making techniques. Learned a lot and got to use some new techniques: fitting a long line of dovetails, half-blind dovetails, sliding dovetails, drawer making, making my own drawer pulls.
The carcase, drawer fronts and drawer bottoms are pine and drawer sides and drawer backs are poplar. Finished with shellac and wax.
For those interested in a play-by-play and a lot more pics, I made 6 blog entries of this build – my blog address should be in my signature line. Then look to the blog archive for “Mini Chest of Drawers”. Thanks for looking.
