Drawers nearly done *PIC*

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.


Well, done enough to show the overall appearance. For divided drawers I like to get the fronts from a single piece so that the grain flows across the fronts. I found some arched grain for the top row.

The arched drawers are actually easy to do. I cut the front to snugly fit, place it behind the arched molding and mark the arc on the front. Then it is a simple matter of band sawing to split the line and planing out the teeth marks. The parallel teeth marks provide depth gauge for the planing. When they are gone-done. The whole operation can be completed in a few minutes, much less time than it takes to do the dovetailing.
