This was a bit of an experiment, I normally use machines and hand tools I decided to try a total piece from start to finish with no electric at all.
I am quite pleased with the out come although the time factor was staggering due to my lack of skill.
I could easilly be converted as there is a unique satisfaction gained from a plane and chisels etc.

Let me know what you think, constructive critisum gratefully recieved.
Be gentle with me as only my third piece of furniture and first with hand tools.

First attempt to attach photos to post as well so lets see how it goes.
Regards
Rob

Hi, Rob

Very nice, doesn't look like your 3rd piece, looks like you have been at it for years.

Looks to me like ABW for the carcase work, but the same for the panels?...seems to be a slightly different colour, but it may be the effects of the photography - Rob

Can you post an account of your build
Like a retrospective WIP..

I like it
My only critiscim of it and its a personal thing is the appearance of different grain direction on the panels and rails

That aside I really do like the piece =D> =D>

Hi

Nice project

On a personal note I am not sure about the use of raised panels on the top

Yes ABW and the pannels are cherry, not the photo.
I agree about the top, but when I laid it out it also seemed to look strange as a solid piece.

How did you get photos to appear?

Any sugestions on a finish, I am thinking danish oil and a wax?

Regards
Rob

Looks great, defiantly not like a 3rd project. I really like Danish oil on ABW, not sure what it does to cherry though.

It looks to be a nice, solid chest. Nice grain matching/orientation in the panels especially. The job's a good 'un.
And all with hand tools. Satisfying 'innit'! :)

Well made..
