I have the "wants" to make a dresser for the bedroom. My usual anxiety over my design ideas has me making a bookcase using many of the G&G elements I plan for the dresser. Sort of a trial run that can go in the study ;-) I figure by posting this early I will give myself some momentum to get things moving along instead of moving at my usual snail pace.
I'm thinkin' walnut for the dresser but, I've got some mahogany that needs sawing so that will do for the bookcase. Here's the general idea at about 30" x 33" or thereabouts.
I roughly mark out parts to look over the grain patterns and get an idea of how one part will play with others once assembled.
I sometimes use the jigsaw to cross cut pieces to rough length. The cuts are quick and the sawdust is minimal.
This is the first project I have done with the new planer. The extra care in setting up is paying off as I am getting nice surfaces with no snipe.
By rough milling to whole dimensions in prep for resaw I can quickly setup the bandsaw using blocks and story sticks.
These four pieces will become the eight pieces used to make the vertical corner pieces.
I'll spend the rest of the evening breaking down boards and rough milling to oversize. There will be three panel glue-ups and I would like to get those in the clamps before the weekend if I can.
