In this episode, Paul presents a drawer that you have possibly never seen, let alone made. This quadrant-shaped drawer pivots on one side and rotates out from a fixed point to 90-degrees. We begin with laminating the curved drawer side that unites the front to the single side of the drawer. It’s a fascinating talking point when you see the elegance of this concept in action.

    For those of us without bandsaws, What is the best approach to preparing these thin strips for all the lamination in this project?

    I suggest buying a veneer and cutting it into the size you need. You will be gluing up many more layers since the veneer will only be 1/16th of an inch thick. You can speed up the process by using a spray adhesive instead of regular glue. I hope your project turns out as beautiful as Paul’s work. Dave

    These are very small pieces and cutting with a hand saw should be no problem. The veneer idea sounds crazy to me. You would glue up so many layers and you would still need to cut them to size.

    Not so many layers. To obtain a 10mm thick piece, you will need 6 layers of 1/16th veneer which is, in my opinion, acceptable. (and only one more than in Paul’s design).

    @EHISEY Cutting the strips by hand is an excellent training exercise for sawing straight and keeping to the line. Make sure your rip saw is sharp and has just enough set. As the strips are so thin, you’ll have to work from both sides, turning over every few strokes to make sure you stay on track.
