This chest is 36” high, 22” deep and 30” wide made with red oak and walnut. The face frame is cut in the curve using 2 X 4 pine, the final curve with a flush cutting bit against a MDF pattern, then veneered with thin red oak resawn on the table and band saw. Drawer fronts are red oak resawn, drum sanded to thin flexible pieces, then plastic resin glued back together on a curved form made of 2 X 6 pine boards (tip: cover the pine forms with wax paper to keep the drawer fronts from sticking to the forms). The legs are 3/4” walnut laminated into posts then cut out on the bandsaw and sanded with a spindle sander. The leg design was done by experimenting on paper then cutting a MDF pattern. The sides are 1/4” oak plywood, kerf cut every 3/8” so they would bend in the slots cut in the legs with a straight bit. Inside drawer fronts are also kerf cut to bend as shown in the last picture. The finish is two coats sanding sealer and two coats lacquer, sprayed. This project is to be donated for a charity fund raiser silent auction.
