Progress is always slower than anticipated!
If you read the previous post – the drawer boxes are made from Bamboo plywood, but I hadn’t decided what material to use for the drawer fronts. The bench is Maple and Jatoba, so considered this. Considered about 10 other (seemingly great) alternatives also. But settled on sticking with Bamboo ply fronts with Jatoba borders….
The next thing was deciding on the pulls – really wanted to avoid store bought pulls.
Here is a nearly completed drawer front:
Thin strips of Jatoba ripped using the Incra TS fence:
No clamps – just tape:
Picked up this tape dispenser for a few bucks…...nice for this kind of work…. :)
Drawer fronts were cut from panels for grain match:
Drawer pulls were shaped from a bunch of thin strips stuck together with 2 side tape:
Then drilled the finger hole on the drill press with a backer board taped in place:
Parts are all cut – just need to assemble:
More to come…....thanks for looking….
