Just finished in time for the upcoming (Hometown Fair) in Nov., here at the community centre. The centre purchased a DR4 Leigh jig about a year ago and I thought I would give it a go. After much trial and error pieces I finally got the set up. The legs came from some discarded piece of furniture I found in the store room. I wish I had recessed the bear portion into the chest. Maybe the next time whenever that will be. Bye to all for now and good times ahead.

Wow just won’t do it, that is a wowza for sure … I like the soloution for the hinge swing on the sliding tray.
Truley unique, the inlay work (marquetry) is just outstanding.

That is a beautiful chest with incredible joinery. I love the trees and bear family! This is definately a winner.
