Those of you who have followed in the past know I can really milk a project. Hopefully, the sharing here will help me keep the tempo up. I have been struggling with a design for a G&G chest of drawers for my bedroom set and finally got the proportions, mechanics and design elements I want, to all live in harmony.
The top drawers and several small details are missing from this drawing but, here is basically where I plan to end up. Walnut with ebony details using maple for secondary parts like the web frames and back panels. The pulls will be hand made but, the jury is still out on the final design.
The web frames will have dust panels so they must be grooved before I cut the half laps and glue them up. The router table makes this easy; the start and end marks will work for the long and short arms of the web frame so it is just a matter of going through the motions. I will do the lap joints and cut out the panels tomorrow as I think I may need to pick up some more ply . . .
