Finally got the dividers dowelled up! As well as sanded to 120, still no screws or fasteners, loose tenons and 2” spiral dowels.
Used Curly Cherry for the dividers too! I know that seems crazy, but I like to use all the same lumber typ on a piece like this, it’s for my home, so I want it how I want it.
First drawer fit perfect, I couldn’t believe this.
You can see what happens next…...
Well, they all fit except that third from the bottom, heres my recovery, oh yea the drawer sides were a little bit tight, heres the recovery…
The two by four is holding up a piece of half inch birch, for the pattern bit, couldn’t clamp it so I had to improvise. Anyway problem averted.
Things are coming together nicely, still some kinks to work out. Its all about recovery, they all ways told me a good carpenter can hide his mistakes, or fix them. The same is true for woodworking. I’d rather fix than hide though! Here are some more pics of the figure, oh the lumber of corse came from WINGO WOOD & LUMBER CO. All air dried, checks around 7% or less, I LOVE CURLY CHERRY!
Guys heres a test piece.It’s a cutoff from one of the drawer fronts, Two coats Watco Danish/Two coats Zinsser seal coat; clear on the left, amber on the right. Topcoat will be General Finishes Arm-R-Seal, probly four or five. Advice welcome…. the amber looks like it didnt absorb as well, think it has adhesion issue as well, per “Ace” anyway I probly go with the clear.
More to come, I slept half the day, so workin’ on the night moves tonight! Late night tip is how I work anyway, Insomnia is a wonderful companion, poses a safety issue tho,lol.
Thanks for havin’ me!
one last pic of the figure!
