Here’s the completed Tansu style case I started a couple months ago, and blogged here ...this was supposed to be a quick, fun, little project – and although it took the couple months from start to finish, it turned out to be just the right “spend-some-time-on-it-here-and-there-project.”
This is an all scrap wood piece, made of cedar, pine, poplar, fir, and walnut
The case is mitered with walnut keys. The drawers are joined with drawer lock joints (a router joint). The vg fir back is simply rabbeted into the case and tacked with little nails…
Finish is 3 coats of a boiled linseed based mix, with a coat of paste wax.
