Tapered Case Project

Most of the hardware is on .. (missing two long dangles on drawer case) ... Final sanding and finishing starts tomorrow ...

An update on the tapered cases shows the drawer faces and the doors veneereed with burl,edged with walnut and bordered with quartered cherry. The hardware is being 'blacked' and we're working on the proportions for the long dangles on the case 'columns'. Coincidentally, the second picture down shows three of the projects that are happening right now ... the tapered cases, a piece of the the concertina game table and the top of a new piece not yet posted, a macassar ebony Art Deco style cabinet with mother-of-pearl inlays. I'll be posting that one soon. Also, next up on the project list is a 'post and beam' pool table. Click the pictures to enlarge them
The drawer case with the veneered faces .... Jeremy will start the drawer boxes Monday.
The doors are almost ready to glue up....We're patching a few defects in the burl veneers and they'll be good to go Monday.

We're underway on the 'New Design Project' , a post I started back in August ... We got some beautiful bubinga for the tops from Trade Winds in Grafton, Vermont and a really fine log of Pennsylvania cherry from Irion Lumber in Wellesville, PA. After finalizing the scale CAD drawings, we made a quick full size drawing, to which we made some small adjustments and started cutting. We will be working on both cases at the same time as the case work is similar except that one has doors and pull outs and the other, drawers. Stay tuned ... Click the pictures to enlarge them ...
