I had, some time ago, spread the word through the family that I had retired from making ‘big stuff’. However, my step-son asked so nicely if I’d make a bureau for him to give to his wife for her birthday. After a bit of thought, I decided to have a go. It would, after all, force me to tidy up the workshop ever so slightly in order to make space. It was a massive help that he was able to get the boards thicknessed for me. That saved me a lot of time (and wear and tear) on my machinery.
It measures 36” wide, 44” high and 20” deep. Dave wanted clean modern lines, so I jointed the cabinet corners with lock mitres
