Precious little dialog, and only three pictures, but know that the Chest has not been forgotten.

Worked an idea I had for the sliding tills. The #78 (love that plane) created a rabbet on pallet pine

That was matched up with a dado’d (and reclaimed) walnut front

To create the beginnings of sliding tills for this chest interior.

More to come!

A blast from the past. Good to see it is still progressing, finding it’s way to the finish line.

Yeah, some other projects (undocumented at that!) jumped in front of this chest. Literally. I haven’t been able to see it for a few weeks as stuff was lined up in front of it.

Should be able to wrap it up reasonably quickly, though. Stay tuned.

Just a wee bit of work last night that may push another installment soon, we’ll see. Raining like crazy today, flash flooding everywhere. Drought of 2012 is officially over.
