Hi Folks
I’m back – apologies for the week-long absence. Work has been busy and stressful…........
I have made some progress on the fluted table. The drawer is mostly done (the dovetails, anyway). I decided to use the Blum drawer slides on the table and have been awaiting a couple of parts before I could mount them. Hopefully tomorrow they will arrive and then I can get on with it!
I got a bit fancy with the dovetails. Not sure if I like it or not – need to live with them for a while. It was fun cutting them – I wish I would try and saw to the lines instead of chickening out and leaving some “paring room”. I’m no Rob Cosman!
Also fitted a digital readout to my thickness planer. It works a treat (although I had to make up some brackets to mount it). I post some pictures soon.
Cheers
Phil

Very good. Phil, how are you attaching the drawer bottom?

I’m making 7 drawers for a chest 1 – 2”, 2 – 4” 2 – 6” and 2 – 8” and I’m trying to engineer the dovetails to make them match in the drawers. I’ll be using a Leigh Jig to cut them.

I will attach the drawer bottom with slips – I’ll post some pictures soon.
The Leigh is a great jig – look forward to seeing your completed chest!
Cheers
Phil

Don’t wait too long. I’m ready to start cutting dovetails, and I don’t want to put them in the wrong places.
