« Part 4: Figured Drawer Fronts With Inlay Part 5 of Small Secretary With Tambour Door series Part 6: Turned Legs and Base Joinery »

First I work on making the “pillars” for the architectural details in the front of the hutch. Then I carve the “foundations” for the pillars with a chisel. I cut the top to size, and using the router table, I form the decorative edge. Again, I use a router to cut the groove for the inlay, glue the inlay in, flush them to the surface as with the drawers and attach the top. I also show how I fix a pretty big mistake when I was cutting the inlay.

As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

Yours is coming along beautifully. I like it a lot better than the picture of the ‘pattern’.

Your fix for the oops looks like it worked perfectly!

The inlays really make this one special.
