So there I was chomping down my wheat-grass, vegan, soy-milk all natural, Tortellini for lunch (Hey I live in Oregon, you try going to Scotland and not having the haggis) So anyway there I was eating lunch, staring at the box I had just picked up from the post office.
It had come!!! It was here!!! After months of waiting, my travisher had arrived! I ordered a Peter Galbert travisher and it was finally here. It was produced by Claire Minihan who did an amazing job. I think I was drooling over the box, but the lunch was good too, so was the cookie ;) Gotta eat healthy.
So promptly after lunch I hastened out to the shop and opened my box with a huge grin on my face. I swear I saw that thing give off a golden shimmer when I opened it.
It looked so nice in its’ new home.
You can order yours here;
”:Now back to our regularly scheduled program:”
Today I started by finishing up the drawers, I chose to go with the same hardware I had used on my tool tote. Though it was walnut and myrtle I though they still matched well enough to keep a flow going.
I have kind of a theme going with the maple and walnut. I think it all started with my saw and vise I made earlier this year.
When it is all said and done it is going to be a maple and walnut wonderland.
I mortised out all the drawer fronts for the Hardware, then made the backs and bottoms and glued them all together.
Once they were glued up I turned my attention to the door fronts. I mortised out for the hinges. I like using soss hinges as they don’t show at all on the outside and they would work well for this application where I wanted the door fronts to overlap the frames and still open to close to 180 degrees.
I just managed to get one door hung by the end of the day so I clamped the door panel to it to see how it was going to look and well, you be the judge ;)
I think i am going to embellish the door fronts a bit with some falling leaf inlays tomorrow if I can get to it. Should be fun. Thanks to all of you for following along with me, you have made this very fun for me!
Take care and have fun woodworking!
