« Part 3: Making the Tambour Door Part 4 of Small Secretary With Tambour Door series Part 5: Architectural Details and Inlaid Top »

In this video, I start by selecting some beautiful figured crotch walnut for the drawer fronts. I resaw the board and then bookmatch the pieces so the “flame” of the figure radiates out from the center of the drawers. I also spend some time cutting and installing inlay in the drawer fronts, build the 6 drawers and then fit them to the openings.

As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

The drawers turned out absolutely gorgeous! The inlay was a perfect complement to the figured walnut.
