Thanks Andy, these videos are really great. some things I never thought about, like planing the drawers after putting the rails.
Aren’t you afraid that the timber movement in the top will pull the frame apart? I guess the screws give it some ability to move and its not very wide.

Yes good point. I didn’t show the slotted screw holes, but they are there. Thankfully the timber is very dry, but as we all know, that just means it can grow in a damp environment. My plan is to loose the top and make a frame and leather insert. But that will be after the students have finished measuring and pawing over it to understand how it is made.

How did you machine the top to thickness? Do you have a belt sander wide enough to handle that size?

Jussi
If you have a look at some of my earlier video “making a marking gauge” you will see a thicknesser. We can fit 620mm across max. The top is 570 so it handled it nicely.
