« Part 4: Milling Legs Part 5 of Greene inspired Night Stand series Part 6: Templates and Cloudlifts »

I figured i would post a quick progress note. I have cut all the tenons for the case and fitted them. Here is a shot of the dry fit. I still need to lay in the dovetailed stretchers on the top. That will be tomorrow.

First Dry fit

I won’t bore anyone with making tenons.

It’s coming along pretty well. I’ll be shaping cloud lifts by Saturday.

What’s a cloud lift, and does shaping == a shaper, or something else?

Hi Ben,

Look back at the first part of this blog. It is in 5 parts. You will see a sketchup model of the project. You can also see a jpeg in my latest project section. The cloudlift is the shape of the rails. i will be using template routing to shape them.

A quick review of how you did the tenons/shoulders on the front stretchers w/the mortise in a tapered leg wouldn’t bore me at all… They look quite smart.

Hey Red Headed Merganser,

Sorry to dissapoint but the legs are as straight as straight can be. My camera lense is round though LOL.
