Krenov Style Cabinet from Spain.
A good customer from Barcelona sent me these pictures of his latest project. This really was built by hand as German has no machinery in his workshop. It took 200 hours to complete.
The drawers are a piston fit, it's always best if possible to design drawers to be longer than they are wide as this makes it easier to achieve.
A nicely fitted panel and some very clean dovetails. I can see he has left the baseline showing which may offend some, but I'm happy either way especially in an open grained timber such as this white oak.
The legs for the stand have been beautifully shaped in black walnut.
A workshop essential, a non marring dead blow mallet, great for encouraging dovetails to seat.
The HNT Gordon spoke shave in action, a great tools and the best spoke shave on the market for working hard woods.
.........and if you were wondering it's purpose, it's a sewing chest.
