Well here are a few more progress pics of the Bombe. One thing I must say about downscaling is that the joinery becomes more difficult to execute. The dovetails had to be cut with an xacto knife and I still didn’t like the way they came out. I’m planning on staining the carcass very dark to emulate mahogany so maybe I can use some stainable filler to fake them up. I also noticed that the draw fronts and rails need to be constantly adjusted as the project progresses. Maybe that’s my inexperience.
