Fancy Shmancy Build...

Nother one begins... Once again not saying what it is yet, but it is cypress. By wed (on shift Sun & Tue) it's going to be painfully obvious but ahh well...

This is going to be one of a 4 piece set...

Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
Finishing is 3 parts chemistry and 1 part VooDoo http://lrgwood.com

Whatever it is, its looking good.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

Loving the build Tom. Looking forward to seeing the end result of this one.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Looks like a dresser front in the last pic laying on the ground. One with nice curved sides.

AND WE HAVE A WINNER!!! Nicely done, ACP!

The side panels will be curved with the rails... Should be interesting!

Alright! What do I win? Years of free advise would be my guess. I think the form looks great and can't wait to see the finished dresser. Especially all four pieces.

Yes, yrs of mediocre advice

Here's a bit of an update...

Front frame dry fit. The I'm going with nothing but hand done joinery on this one because I'm not in too much of a rush and because it's so dang enjoyable!
