Here is the second drawer to be filled ...



Why "Skeleton Drawer"? Well, it does not contain dark secrets, buried bodies, or other clandestine material :D

It is just the name I have given to the drawer design since, unlike Drawer #1, which hid a jewellery layer, this discloses all from the outset.

The drawer holds my Kiyohisa chisels: paring slicks and bench oire nomi. It is important to be able to find, and extract them easily when working at the bench.

The paring chisels lie in the upper level ...



These slide into the cabinet and, below, are the oire nomi (3mm through 30mm) ...



There are two others at the rear, a second 30mm and a 36mm ...



This is a clearer presentation ...



The chisels lie on shaped rests. The blades lie on rare earth magnets, which prevent them moving from the rests when the drawer is opened and shut, or the top layer extended into the cabinet ...



The wood used for the rests and the slide is West Australian Sheoak ...



The rear of the drawer, the drawer back, has been cut away above the second dovetail. This is how the the top layer slides into the cabinet ...



I trust you are finding this fun as well :)

Regards from Perth

Derek

Fun, interesting, inspiring and a number of other adjectives all of them laudatory.
Regards from a locked down and rather cool South of France,

You've even got best London pattern handles on your pozidrives.

That's very posh.

And a load of Vesper stuff too.....
