Chest of Drawer Series
Hello friends, I have finished the panels and decided to inlay a few dutchmen in the top.
I do believe that this simple procedure can add a wonderful accent to your piece. Not to mention cover up that knot or imperfection.
I wanted to get this done before I started the dovetail joinery on the carcass.
So if you have a few minutes watch the film and let me know what you think.
With this method the size or shape of the Dutchman does not matter. Because yo set it to the exact shade of the tie. So they can be off and obtuse. I have done this an it looks good to. Once I took a cherry knot cut a Dutchman out of it and inlay-ed the knot in my workpiece.
What methods do you use?
Next time we will start the joinery.
There are lots of decisions to still make. It will take me an hour to decide what the layout of the tails will be. It took me 20 minutes to figure out where I was going to place the bowties.
As always folks, thank you for coming and giving me some of your time.
