Dovetails, I love cutting dovetails. Wait, wasn’t I just doing this??? Deja Vu all over again.
Today I milled up and cut the pieces for the door frames. They will be a little undersized in width to accommodate the curves in the frames. The case is 40”x40” and each door will be 19” wide x 40” tall.
Oh hey, before i forget I forgot to tell you all about a few things yesterday. First off I got the last piece of curly western maple that will become the plane till.
I also made a new sign for my door. I had an old painted sign that read “Chairman of the board” on my door, but it was very small and hard to see from any distance so I made a new one on my cnc ;)
It turned out great!!
So the curly panels are glued up and the frames for the doors are done, I just need to make the faces of the doors and carve them wild like the saw till. It has been raining cats and elephants here lately and so I can’t get outside to grind. I will probably do most of it by hand.
All in all a pretty good day, I am incredibly blessed to get to do what I love. Especially with this project that is just for me. I don’t mind sharing, you can look, but don’t touch. Thanks all and have fun woodworking.
