Popular Post Chestnut Posted April 27, 2020 Popular Post Report Share Posted April 27, 2020 I guess I'm basing this off of Matt Cremona's sideboard enough that i can reference it. I mentioned in a few other threads that I'm going to make a Sideboard where I will use the interior of the doors as the guestbook for Megan and I's upcoming wedding (provided it can happen). Here is the plan. A good portion of this project will be made from walnut that I got in a batch on craig's list. A guy was selling a couple 8/4 boards for $8/bf and threw in a bunch of scraps. The scraps are 6/4 rough and should plane and joint out to a hair over an inch. I'll probably take them down a bit further though to the thinnest common board. So far i have leg stock milled with the curve laid out and I'm working on grooves and joinery. I'm going to do some traditional style joinery with structural dovetails tying pieces together instead of just M&T. It's going to be fun to try some new techniques. For a warm up I made a card box to set out and hope that people put money in at our wedding reception. I'm not above begging if needed. 10 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
