Transformations

I had meant to mention the way I dealt with the dowels, the leg joinery, but there was not the opportunity.

Here are the legs, and you can see the ugly dowels. What I did was to turn them upside down, and remove the dowelled section in the taper cut ...




First, the legs were morticed ..




I built a simple fixture for my sliding table saw ...




The nail holes were filled with coloured epoxy, which disappeared after the finish was applied ...




And then smoothed ...




I was asked (when I posted this photo elsewhere) why I planed into the grain. The answer is ‘because I can with a closed chipbreaker’ Smile No, the real answer is because it was easier to keep track of the mark demarcating the flat section.

Very clever design and execution on the drawer, Derek! And exceptional work as usual - well done!

P.S. Did I see "metal" angle braces in the corners? - pure heresy!!! (Just kidding Smile)
