About a year and half ago I took a class at my local Junior College on furniture making. This is the project that I completed for the course. This project was done with cherry and curley maple. Every thing is solid lumber with the exception of drawer bottom. Finished with Enduro water base finished with added amber dye (Trans Tint).
Thanks for looking

I really like the whole style of the piece. It that what they call Shaker? Love the way the cherry looks with the maple.

greetings deke;
Here is how I did the legs.:
1st: joint and planed
2nd : put all the mortises in
3rd: made a template with a bandsaw
4th: trace the curve on all legs
5th: once I was happy with the shape of the curve I cut the legs with bandsaw close to the line
6th: clamped the legs together with the curve side pointing up
7th: used spoke shave to remove bandsaw marks and finish sanded everything together
You have remember that these legs are only curved on one side.

That cherry grain looks fantastic. Nice build.

-- Life is about choices. You can spend a lot of money on furniture and have really nice furniture; Or you can spend a lot on tools and have even more expensive, crappy furniture. I made my choice.

Have your say...
