A new little project. Not so romantic. But, honestly, everybody needs it. So… lets have a look.
I began with a blueprint

The wood is beech. I did not docunented first few steps because they were standard – making laminated panels and dovetails (ok, making dovetails is not the standard procedure for me so far, but I described it in details in my previous blog).
Drawing curves with a french curve

Sawing with a bansaw

Trimming the edges with a sandpaper

Making rabets with a chisel

Ready rabets (I should work on the technique)

Makinkg an insertable (?) round beam. I do not have a lathe :( . So I made it with a plain


I finished the shaping of the beam with a curved card scraper

The tenons of the beam were of dovetail shape. And when I made counterpart mortises, I found very comforyable to finish them with a router plane

The finish is linseed oil and liquid wax. The whole thing

Ready for use

Some detailes


And, as one of my Russian frend said, obligatory dovetail porn

Nicely done, Sergeich! I would not have thought to use a dove tail to hold the beam. Many, me included, would have a hard time matching your results on the lathe. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, Candy!
You are invariably kind to me as always. And yes, dovetails in the beam have rather esthetic function

There’s everything that good WW project should have: dovetails, dadoes, some quick jigs, and linseed oil!

Great work!

Nice job there Serg. I see you use the expensive brand of T paper. LOL!

Have no project currently, just can’t work the wood when our country goes straight to hell…
Sorry if that upsets you in any way.
