« Part 1: Just starting Part 2 of Drawer Wagon for the study desk for my son series no next part

Oh it takes long time…
Just finished preparing the top, 2 sides and bottom part. All write ash.



The top is the series of the top from the desk.
Put an indian rose butterfly as a pair from the other one from the desk. I did the last one with router and straight bit, but for this time, I wanted to try it only with hand tool. And found out it’s easier to do it with chisels to make the corners sharp.

For the side parts, I put 2 pieces togther with SPLINED EDGE JOINT, in Japanese we call it “Yatoizane Hagi”. It literally means “employed piece joint”, So the little long piece is employed by the main pieces… I think this is a famous joinery technique in Japan for a long time. Easier than biscuit joint for me.

Now I am going to put all them together, but there are some steps to do before that. Oh, I have to get some slide rails…
