After I make a few more coffee and end tables. Is a tall chest of drawers. I'm trying to spark some ideas so any plans or pictures with general dimensions would be greatly appreciated.

PS FredP - I may tap on you for some hands on drawer construction tips

Thanks

I have Thom Mosers book.."Measured Shop Drawings for American Furniture" It's a great reference for construction details

You're welcome to it anytime Jeff. Scott has a couple of my books by Jim Krenov..they make for good reading and have some excellent pointers.

You know you're welcome anytime at the shop if you want to kick around ideas.

Hey don - I'm not all that good at woodworking, still trying to get comfortable with the basics... like dado's, M&T, and rabbits, etc... Speaking of rabbits, they make a pretty good stew with biscuits :gar-La;

I do have a pretty good rabbit stew recipe :)

3 lb. of rabbit meat, cleaned and cut into pieces
1 c. of merlot red wine (Cheap blackberry works good)
1/2 lb. of cooked bacon, diced
1/2 c. of onion
1 clove of chopped garlic
1/2 tsp. of salt
2 tsp. of lemon juice
1/3 c. of all-purpose flour
1 c. of water
1 tbsp. of chicken bouillon granules
about 1 tbsp. of currant jelly
8 ~ 10 black peppercorns, crushed
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp. of rosemary
1/8 tsp. of thyme
3 tbsp. of water
2 tbsp. of all-purpose flour

Fry bacon and set aside. Sprinkle rabbit with salt and coat with flour, fry rabbit in bacon fat, Remove. Saute the onion and garlic in bacon / rabbit fat approx 4 mins, add in the wine, 1 c. of water and chicken bouillon. Let this come to a boil, add in the jelly, peppercorns, bay leaf, rosemary, and the thyme. Add back in the rabbit and bacon. bring to a boil, then reduce to low heat for approx. 1 1/2 hr. Take out the bay leaf. Make gravy, add lemon juice to a another skillet. Add in 3 tbsp. of water and 2 tbsp. of flour mix over low flame. Pour gravy over over rabbit stew and serve with some whomp biscuits. Good eating right there :gar-Bi

Anyone made one like this? I never liked open bottoms so I'll change the trim to be flush with the floor. I'm thinking I may increase the height of the upper case and add dental moulding around the top of it. The basic dimensions and profiles are pictured any suggestions for improvements?

Please explain small 2 or 3 fluted edge molding on the front two corners? I'm a picture kinda a guy so if you could point me to a picture I might understand.

Rail/Stile / cope/stick - I had a great router bit set that I let a friend borrow, he hit a nail with one of the bits and replaced it with a cheapo HF set which I have not even tried to use yet :roll:

Turning work hu? your a funny guy :slap:
