Another project from a woodworking magazine! Actually its a modified version of Fine Woodworking’s pie safe from the Jan 2006 issue. This project was for my tech school final project where we were required to build more then one and we had specific requirements as far as equipement, joinery, techniques, and processes. I couldnt nail a complete original design to use, so I mixed FWW’s project with a little modern twist. I incorporated the CNC router and ArtCAM to make the cherry leaves on the low left and right sides of the cabinet as well as the internal drawer fronts with the weave carving. One of the pictures has me shaping the legs on the Martin shaper using a jig I made on the CNC. The crown molding was made by creating templates and grinding knives for the Wieng molder at school instead of doing numerous tablesaw cuts and sanding like FWW did. I also used a CNC mortiser/tenor, CNC dovetailer, and alot more of the finest woodworking equipement available but I still took me enough time to build three of them beasts. Materials where solid 8/4 and 4/4 cherry, cherry mdf, KV undermount drawer slides (dont buy them, buy blums), cherry veneer, morris solid brass butt hinges, and chemcraft plastofix conversion varnish to seal it.
