Hello again all. I got the beading done on the blades.

! Photobucket !

After that I use an oversized bearing on a rabbeting bit to remove the material between the beading. Also I left some material on the dovetails. The only reason for that is I was afraid of tear out.

! 27 !

I roughed out the drawer template the same way a I did the drawer fronts with a pattern cutting bit. But the drawer fronts have to follow the same contour as inside the beads. I just used the same rabbeting bit to take care of that

! 25 !

The last thing to do is chisel out the material left from the router. A 9/5 works great for the beads. And then a flat chisel for the centers.

! 24 !

You should try using the macro function when taking pictures up close.

Looks good. Hope the pics on the next installment are better (better than mine too).
