@gman3555: Greg, I think I’ve finally found the definitive design for my next bookshelf! http://hillbillydaiku.com/2015/10/03/bookcase-progress-1-design/ 🙂
Great design, Greg! You’re really one step ahead!
Great work! Really, really nice.
Then – IMO – your project well shows that Paul’s projects/techniques are cleverly “modular”. You can use some parts as components for other projects, you can mix/extend solutions and get your own, personal result.
Thank you for posting.
one of the two drawers is done.
For the back of the drawer I’ve used a “strange” solution.
My grandpa used the same solution in 1940, when he built a dresser for the family…
My grandpa died when I was a baby and too young to learn something. But the dresser is still here and I decided to copy that solution. I think it works… In this sense my grandpa is… teaching me something.
I think the right term is “ledger strip”; anyway I found this image: http://www.wood-w.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/74.jpg ; it shows all the elements with the element name; we can use it as a reference. 🙂
Have a nice day!
Very nice work! Thank you for posting.
If I’m not wrong side runners/kickers are screwed. But how did you attach the ledgers? And are inner runners tenoned? A lot of questions, I’m sorry! But your project is very, very interesting (I’d like to build a work table – with two or three drawers – for the kitchen). Thank you!
For this box I used beer glaze: https://woodworkingmasterclasses.com/discussions/topic/feet-for-the-lid/
it’s water-based, fast-drying acrylic paint (two colours). Polished with white wax.
The technique is more or less the same Paul uses with chalk paint.
For the next projects I’d like to use more traditional (or ancient) techniques (beer glaze, wax + iron oxides, …). Working with pigments is really, really beautiful.
Have a nice day!
