Jewellery Field options field joints, stopped dados, half blind dovetails, with walnut drawers and drawer runners

Simply so you might be clear, my objective with this challenge was to stretch myself, get out of my consolation zone and do precision, nice woodworking. Did I make errors, completely I did in order stunning because the piece seems to be in the long run, don’t be fooled, you may make it for those who set your thoughts to it. That being stated if the wooden seems to be acquainted, it’s, that is left over offcuts from the Espresso desk. Lovely figured butternut, an enormous assertion for a jewellery field construct.

I made a decision to do field joints for the corners, my first time attempting these and it was undoubtedly trial and error however I created a cross minimize sled particularly for this goal, that and making dovetails.

After slicing the field joints not the desk noticed, I scored the perimeters with a marking gauge. You’ll undoubtedly need to do that on any sort of joinery the place it’s worthwhile to chisel out on a definite line, it retains the wooden from tearing out past the chisel line. I picked this up from the wooden whisper jewellery field guild challenge, so many useful ideas in Marc’s tasks. A wealth of data. You’ll see me do that as properly on the dovetails afterward.

For the field panel joinery I went with a easy rabbet for all panels. Right here I’m debating on easy methods to get the rabbet into the facet field panel and I virtually tried to do it with the wooden flat on the workbench however I knew this wouldn’t finish properly. I attempted routing the piece immediately on the router base utilizing the sting information however it was actually too small to be correct and I had just a little tear out however not sufficient to spoil the piece. I actually wanted a router desk of types however I’ve but to construct my router desk. I used to be already planning to construct the Samurai Carpenter router base jig and I had already bought my plexiglass and now was nearly as good a time as any to construct the jig. I simply clamped my sq. to the bottom and it labored completely for routing my rabbet channels.

I actually like how the again field panel turned out with the e-book matched design. You’ll see how gorgeous this in the long run.

One other tip from Marc’s challenge was the element that goes to creating the gaps in drawers utilizing shims. I realized a lot throughout this course of and I’m truthfully excited to do extra drawers after the successes on this challenge.

After making my traces on the items for dovetails I put my desk noticed blade on the 12.5 levels and minimize the dovetails. This course of made them very very clear in addition to made for an excellent match.

For the drawer slides I minimize a dado slot and positioned a walnut slide on the edges after measuring for exactness and drawer entrance hole symmetry. I finagled the slides to give you the proper match for the drawers, not too unfastened however unfastened sufficient to stop any catching when closing them.

The drawer sides acquired a dado to suit the drawer slides.

As soon as I had all of the items prepared, subsequent got here glue up and last changes to suit.

Consider it or not, I virtually didn’t go together with this curved leg design for this field however after seeing that first leg on there I used to be blown away, it modified the sport for the aesthetics and took this field to the following degree.

After trimming the legs barely i twas time for end. I selected what I’ve been selecting for lots of challenge currently. Actual Milk Paint Pure Tung oil. I simply actually like making use of these items, whereas it does take a while for it to treatment I really like the outcomes and it has a pleasant nutty scent to it.

For the ultimate contact I utilized a small quantity of wax onto the draw dados and drawer slides.

The field was lastly executed!

Very nice. I can't help but think it would look better with mitered corners instead of box joints. Still, very nice.
