Thread: for those without a jointer or planer

  1. #1

    for those without a jointer or planer

    This is what I threw together when loml's sister came to stay with us for the summer last year. I had less then a week to build and install it so I decided to make it totaly out of birch plywood.

    Here is a picture of one of the frames with the drawer frontsplaced in the opening. I made the frames using pocket screws and the fronts I cut mortise and tenons on the tablesaw. I trimmed the ply edges of the frames with a bead detail and I used part of an ogee bit to make some trim pieces to cover the plywood edges at the beaded panel. All the drawers are 1/2" ply with dovetails.

    Its a totaly seperate piece. That bead and the interior trim on the drawer fronts are the only solid wood on the whole project. Everything else is made of plywood. Dan reminded me of this when he was wondering how he was going to make his doors without a planer or jointer.

    Gee Alan, it would take me more than a week to just stain and finish it.

    I already had 3/4" exterior plywood left over from another job so I built the carcass out of it and used 1/4" birch plywood to skin it with. Doing it that way allowed me to stain and finish everything laying flat.
