Very nice

I had to make the carcass by using different joints
Don't leave us in suspense :lol: - a quick description would be good if you don't have any work-in-progress pictures.

That's a lovely piece of furniture with crisp lines. :)

Am I right in thinking that it hasn't had a finish applied yet?

Thanks for the comments everyone

It has a coat of Clear wax, i was going to put some Mahogany wax on it for a darker colour, but on the test peice it looked like it had been tangoed :p



Well the top bit is held in by Half-blind dt's, front bottom draw rail is a Mortice and tennon joint, and the top bit has tounge and groove joints to make it in to a square top (sorry im not very good at explaing lol)
Mortice and tennons for the door frame with a groove in to hold the panel in place

this is the only WIP pic i can put on my pc atm since my phone is playing up :x
I do have earlier stages though :eek:

Thanks for the extra picture (I enjoy work-in-progress shots - they explain thing better than words,usually)

Looks nice in mid-construction as well :D

And personally,I like it with the clear wax finish - be proud of it!

A nice looking job. Good way to start, are tools used on a communal basis or do you have to take your own to the session?

Thanks for all the great comments

I take them with me to each session. The reason for my buying my own was alot of the people in my workshop would just "borrow" my tools and when i would reach for them, they wouldn't be there :x

thanks again,

Jez
