Cherry Chest of Drawers Part 1
Chest of Drawers Series
Hello folks. I have had what I thought were 3 very nice antique boards saved up in the shop attic for that special project. Two of them were in wonderful shape the third was cracked and worm ridden.
My granddaughter, Ayrabella is less than a year old.
Her mother and grandmother were needing a new set of chest of drawers for the babies clothing. I volunteered my cherry and time for the project. I picked a demention of 24″ by 24″ and 14″ deep because of the board feet I have. I don’t think I will make that much due to worms and inclusions. It will be more like 22″ by 22″.
This will be a multi part series due to the complexity of the project. My shop being small dictates that I start and finish one project at a time. So I hope to have this done by her first birthday. I will make the carcass then drawers. The next will be forging the hardware and I have thought about may bee some leather work in it. We shall see.
So bear with me and come along for the ride if you will.
Sorry I didn’t take any still pictures but as always there is a video.
Please be careful. Some of the things I do are dangerous. It is not my fault if you get hurt. Use your brain, be safe.
