Collectors Cabinet, Latest Project.
Above are the leaves salvaged from my parents antique mahogany dining table. It was a shame to cut up such lovely old boards but they were badly warped and recycling was the best option.
The cabinet stands about 32" high and has 15 dovetails on each corner. I've shot the drawer sides, for all 11 drawers, into their respective openings which was followed by fitting the fronts and backs. Lots of work with my (unhandled and comfortable) Veritas Shooting Board plane.
An article in Furniture and Cabinet Making magazine on the whole project will follow in the coming months.
