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