Please excuse the other people and things in the images , this was a project in my grade 11 joinery course in AB canada. it was the first project and the largest. It used alot of panels , all held together with biscuits. You can see a few parts of our shop in the background. Made of alder. Was made from a plan originally but the design has been diluted and i made it from looking at another example.

Looks pretty nice from over here. I like the look of Alder, we would call that ‘rustic alder’ .

So many of my projects are inspired by a plan I saw and then modified to make it mine, just the way I wanted it.

Good job on the chest.

The image dosen’t show the finish well , it was taken only after coat 1 , as it sits i finished it with 3 coats of natural penetrating stain and 3 coats of semi gloss spray lacquer.

Nice job! Your joinery looks perfect.

I made one of these for a client once. She had me make a 3” deep sliding box on 1×2 cleats mounted near the top for small linens and embroidery. came out nice.

You could also use this to put your tools in too. add some handles and compartments inside.

I loved woodshop. Best part of the day,.... that and Gym. Ha!

Have your say...
