Here is a design that I came up for our iMac patterned after a classic Shaker secretary. I don't get as much time in the shop as I used to, so this has been a long time in coming. I still need to shoot it with some pre-cat lacquer, but for now the BLO will have to do the trick. Just too cold in Michigan right now!!!
I made sure to cut all the door pieces from the same board so that the grain would match, not only on the panels, but on the styles and rails as well. I had to come up with a good code to keep all the pieces straight before gluing them up!
I cut the dovetails so that I could get the thinnest of pins. For some reason, that's my favorite look and what I'm used to cutting.
Some of the supplied screws were too long so I had to use my own. They were too shinny, so I used liquid gun blue to give them a nice antique look - a lot nicer looking than spraying them black. Makes for a nice trick.
That should about cover the bases. All the hardware came from either Whitechapel or Horton Brass.
I have a ton of construction pics at my blog. Feel free to check them out under the new work.
Thanks for looking!
