This was a learning experience for me, had to figure out how to overcome twisted wood. Made a sled for my planer, found that it needed to be cleaned as the rollers would not feed. After all the cleaning found a thread saying that if they were too cold it would not feed.
This was my first project using my Dowelmax jig and can say it works really well.
The drawer was made from some furniture grade ply, with a poplar face. I tapered legs for the first time, was in the process of making a tapering jig and after knocking off for the night the plywood bowed like a boomerang. So wound up just using some scrap to attach pieces to hold the legs during the operation. Need to get some better 3/4 ply as a base for this jig.
It will be given as is and my Niece will finish it herself.
