Very nice. Like those drawer runners. What are the pulls. They look like brass.

IMO, you're up to the Gerstner. That would be a fun build.

Excellent. Beautiful addition to her sewing nook.

I'm sure she didn't mind the wait once she saw it.

Glad my wife’s doesn’t read this forum, or I’d have a project to do! Very nice.

Very nice cabinet. It's a little hard to see from the photo, but have you cut a bead and groove at the top and a groove at the bottom to simulate the top detail? - that's a clever way to disguise the applied plywood bottom while adding a very stylish detail to the drawer front. I'll have to keep that in mind in case I have a project like that in the future - fortunately my wife doesn't sew so I know it won't be a sewing cabinet. Sitting here, thinking that using 1/4" BB plywood for the bottom would give you a striped effect to the edge (5 plies) and this could be duplicated by cutting a narrow strip and attaching it to the top of the drawer front, same narrow groove top and bottom to separate the front from the striped bead.

Yes, the bottom plywood is disguised by a 1/8" radius beading bit.   I did the same on the top, though it would have worked without.  It looked a bit different from the QSWO front, but it all blended in once stained and glazed.

 

On the touch up kit drawers, I just rabbeted the front piece and the plywood bottom does not go all the way to the front.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
