In a recent post a fellow LJ member “ohwoodeye” asked if I would post some pictures of the Highboy I built so here it is.
The pictures aren’t great as they were taken some 15 years before I had a decent camera so this is the best I can do.
As mentioned above I built this about 15 years ago. The was my first serious piece of furniture. I did have a back ground in Carpentry and had build a small coffee table and some book shelves. But nothing like this.
This Highboy is a scaled down version of an article I found in a fine woodworking on making a bonnet top Highboy.
I have posted this before on other forums and alway get some remarks about using metal slides from those who are more of the pursuits type. I expect I’ll get some of that here also and that’s OK. I always say each to their own.
Full extension metal slide are great in my opinion. They are very functional, work smoothly, reduce labor and time. I think if the metal slides were available 100 years ago the old timers would have used them also.
