    Good evening all,

    I have been lurking around for while but thought I would post up.
    Paul has inspired me to have a go and as such I have now made four of the wall clocks as gifts and now I’m working through the chest project.
    As you can hopefully see in the pics it’s pine, all hand cut etc. I don’t have a bench or a vice just a work mate and one of the bar tables to rest on. I live in a flat above our Bussiness so no workshop!
    It has been great so far and I only have about 5 hours in.
    I liked the extra draws and the smaller draws are for chisels and marking tools but I’ll see how that goes. One of the pics shows a right cock up with the dovetails but luckily it was on the inside, I learned what went wrong and the others are spot on.
    I’ll keep posting up progress as I go along.



    Some more pics.

    Forgot to say it is the 24″x18″ design just stretched taller a wee bit.
    As the pine came from Jewsons it was a little prone to cupping hence the clamping in one of the pics

    Looks like a good start. I wish my dovetails looked that good.

    Had no time really this week but at least got the bottom frame made up and now glued up.
