Default A little update

Nothing much to report but I though I'd post the weekend progress on the two military chests.


After the stream of mistakes I made earlier on, this time I was not taking any chances. In the absence of chalk I made liberal use of tape ...



I had already completed this side (6 drawers) ...



Now I completed the mirror image (3 drawers and 3 shelves) ...



Here are the two together ..



This weekend I will clean and glue it up (the above are dry fits). Then onto the drawers. I've also basically decided against the platform base I suggested at the start, and instead use traditional bun feet, like these, and the same brass edging and handles ...



Regards from Perth

Derek

I didn't follow the arduous process it seems you've gone through but they're looking good now Derek. Those pieces will be treasured (and easily endure) for generations to come.

They will definitely be heirlooms to be passed down through several generations of the Cohen family.
