day started with a snow blizzard mixed with slush. no fun at cleaning that up as it’s super heavy. but that also mean that it was above freezing temperatures.
today I was able to glue up the drawer fronts. these are mostly maple, with some mahogany strips. the mahogany strips are there as a design feature that helps blend in the drawer pulls which will be installed next and will also be made of mahogany – hence the blend in.
I added some 1/8” strips of mahogany and maple as well to give it a more refined look. first thing was to glueup the strips before glueing them to the larger maple board of the drawer. this makes it easier to control the glueing process as there are quit a bit of strips:
once that was set, I planed those strips clean, and glued it to the larger maple board of each drawer. then brought it back into the house to cure as the garage is becoming too cold for the glue:
next would be to plane those drawer fronts down, and trim to size. after that install the drawer pulls, and attach to drawers.
the 2 doors will follow the same design only the strips will be vertical.
