Hello Rolf

Nice work. Well constructed too. Nice to see dovetails being used for construction.

Bravissimo Rolf ! Very nice cabinet and quite impressive documentation !

Just a curiosity: I see the two sides are plain massive wood. They must be rather heavy: did you consider the option frame-and-panel for them ?

Cheers

My intention was to built massive sides and to join them with dovetails (second time I made them so I used a dovetailguide) as I saw the timber with dark "false" heartwood.


As the wood I used was ALder the corpus is not that heavy, I could always handel it alone.
As the side will expand and contract in the same way as the top and bottom this was less effort to build as frame and panel to deal with changing humidity.
The main difficulty was that the boards were lightly twisted. So the corpus is not perfect square...

Rolf

I had the same problem once and since then I prefer to use frame-and-panel everywhere ! It's more work but less panic if the wood begins to move !

P.S. I presume you couple the magnetic dovetail guide with a dozuki, uh ?

Up the proverbial creek
Not sure I got round to welcoming you, Rolf. Sorry about that.

I like the cabinet, especially the bit about making the moulding. Something I keep meaning to get round to trying, but it keeps dropping down the "to do" list. :( And you've got a "55" too. Lucky guy. BTW, I think your dovetail guides are much nicer than the ones that won top tip in FWW. :wink:

Cheers, Alf
