I retired in March this year after 47 years spent in the printing industry and at last have the time to be in my workshop doing what I love best. It took 5 weeks to complete, I tried doing the templates for the door and head curves by hand on the bandsaw but found there was just too much imperfection to sand out.
I eventually had all the templates cut professionally out of 16mm MDF by a local company using water jet cutting equipment.
Rail and style + bioscuits were used on all joints. Prior to this project I had only used the shaper with a straight fence but am now slowly learning to use a ring fence. Six pieces of solid Kiaat were used they were each on avg 2.600mm x 220mm x 40mm. The final thickness of most wood used was 26mm.
I have only recently got onto internet with an ADSL line and this is the first posting that I have attempted, if anything is not right please advise. One has to start someware.
