Got some more pics of the progress on the chest. Draw bottoms,draw sides and backs. Started on the feet. I cut them on my trusty old craftsman jig saw. The curves were too tight to do it on the band saw. I,ll probably go through 6 or 7 blanks before I get 4 that I like. Ball and claw in this scale is tuff. Not giving up yet but may have to go with just a simple cabriolet foot. Wish me luck.

Thanks Jim, I really like the interaction from the Jocks. Don”t seem to get as many views on the blog as I do on the projects posts. Do you find that also?
