I’m posting this at the request of several members who commented on my Greene and Greene Desk.
The first first two jigs are used to build the corner breadboard spline and the straight splines for the breadboard ends. These are the “standard” designs used by William Ng as shown on his YouTube videos.
The last three pictures show the jig used for make the side aprons and lower rail. The jig is one of two I used, the other is longer for the long curved rails. To make the apron is a multi-step process.
1. Cut a thin piece “1/8” veneer for the faux rail on the bottom of the apron.
2. Rough cut the convex side on the bandsaw and use the router with a pattern bit to cut to final shape
3. Roundover the final convex side 1/8”
4. Glue the faux rail onto the full apron
5. Cut the concave side to rough shape on the bandsaw and then use the jig with a pattern bit to cut to final shape
6. Roundover the concave side 1/8”
The rails are done using the same jig except I insert the dowels for indexing the thinner piece.
I hope I explained it well enough. Let me know if you have any questions.
