« Part 1: Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Part 2 of Room Furniture Series. series Part 3: Updated Design »

I have been spending a lot of time in the past day looking up different styles of dressers and amoires and what i was looking for was that it is a very simple but elegant style. I wanted it to be something like the Quaker Spice Box built by Steve Latta in Fine Woodworking #196. I really liked this style so i am planning on basing the style of the dresser and amoire off of the Spice Box. So now the next step is to start drawing and sketching plans. I am also planning on going to some higher end furniture stores to get some ideas on construction techniques. Also which i will show in this blog is i need to build an assembly table for these pieces. It will be built off of David Marks design which is very low to the ground. I like the Wood Whisperer’s design just i don’t have very high ceilings and i need all the room that i can get. Alright so I’ll start drawing up the plans and post them as they start to take shape.

Interesting choice. Are you planning on leaving the swinging door on?

As far as I know you can save it the way it is (the way you are looking at it ) I’am currently doing a course in solid works the same as C.A.D and thats the way we do it
