I posted one of my projects on the fine woodworking site...

overall chest was taken at the Northeastern Woodworkers Association's
Woodworkers Showcase in Saratoga Springs last March.
Anyone else here put their stuff up on the FWW site? I'd be interested in

I did, John, despite seeing that little layout line in the picture of
the through dovies. A few quick scrapes over that (before taking the
picture) would have left you with a perfect score.
I don't think I've seen white oak and walnut together before, but it
makes a really nice combo. Kudos.
Remember, in an emergency, dial 1911.
There seems to be a significant divide over the scribe lines... some like
them and some don't. Me, I like them as I'm used to seeing them on 18th
century pieces (such as those I saw while working at Colonial Williamsburg)
and those on original Shaker pieces (that I've seen at Shaker sites in NY
and MA). Planing or scraping the scribe lines away seems to be a modern
thing... or more cynically, a sign that the drawer didn't fit and needed
significant "tuning." ;~)
Thanks for the Kudos!
John, that's beautiful. Did you hand cut them 'tails or is that the
Leigh dovetail jig set up? Did you use BLO before you put on your film
finish? I love the hand cut outs. I use them on all my pull-outs for
kitchen cabs. They're just Baltic Birch pull-outs though.
I recall seeing the Walnut Bedside Tables previously... but I'm sure it was
on your web site and not the FWW site??
It might be interesting if folks here on the rec would mention it when they
put things on FWW so we can all go take a look. The woodworking binaries on
usenet have tapered off a lot with the loss of feeds for folks...
