Celebrating Dovetails - Small Chest of DrawersLocked down project!
I enjoy using hand cut dovetails, and this project was a treat. The slope of the dovetail is everywhere, but I'll point them out. The drawer pulls are sized to emulate the slope and also take your eye to the power switch. The individual drawer pull sides and holder have the same slope. The infill side panels are also share the same angle. The dovetails in the drawers and the cabinet are all cut using the same slope.
The slope of the dovetail is a “custom” slope, which is identical to the slope of the sides of the Spindle Sander these drawers have been designed to hold.
The timber is recycled myrtle, wenge, and poplar. Finished in Kunos Oil Sealer.

My Woodsprite

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


My WoodspriteI have always wanted to try carving a Woodsprite, and since I have a maple tree with a large knot hole, I decided to give it a resident. I studied YouTube and found lots of information…..some of it actually useful. The carving was done with a Dremel tool on a piece of western red cedar. It is about 14 inches tall and has no finish…...I just want him to weather like an old man. He was made to fit the opening and is a friction fit. I think the collar of the knot is growing and wedging him in even tighter. He has weathered a year….even Minnesota winter….and looks good.
