Hi John,

Nice chest :) I am not sure quite why it does not link in the normal way :( but if you cut and paste the link into the browser address it displays correctly :shock:

Hi Dave - thanks for your response. Thats what I found - if I cut and paste it works. I have just spent ages setting up my "how it was made" pics just to find they did not work. I have removed them and just placed the final picture so I can experiment a bit !!!

Anyone any ideas what is wrong with the pic link??

John

PS Nope, doesn't like it. Maybe freeserve/wanadoo doesn't like links. Can't see too much wrong with the URL.

Here it is on uploadit.org


Fantastic chest, would be interested in the how do's when you get the pics sorted.

Thanks for your help guys .. I will try again now !!!!

The Chest is made from 17 meters of 25mm x125 sawn stock, supplied by S&L hardwoods.
Some was not the straightest I've used! Also their delivery was awful - took 4 weeks :(


I ripped the 125 mm to 80mm for the panels and 40 mm for the rails.
The 80mm was then resawn and thicknessed to 10 mm for the panels.


All the stock was planned and thicknessed on my Maxi 26.

The construction used Stile and Rail joints that were machined using a combination cutter on the Maxi Spindle Moulder. The corner stiles have two profiles machined at 90 degrees.



The rails were fitted thus:-


The panels were raised also using the Maxi Spindle Moulder



The top is made from 3 widths of 22 mm thickness, biscuit jointed together. The chest floor and dividers are from plywood.




The chest was finished using sanding sealer and French Polish.

I dont know if this qualifies as an entry in the competition - its certainly a box with a lid, allbeit a big one ! Its also my first project involving any kind of frame or box construction - its been an interesting learning curve :)

John,
An excellent job indeed. That is an interesting corner joint - seems to work very well for the design. The finish looks great too. Congratulations.

Poor story on the timber supplier - I guess they had to grow it first!

John,

Glad you got the pictures up, worth the wait. :D

I have never made corners like that, its a good idea, filed away for future use, thanks. :)

I have never bought wood mail order due to my mistrusting nature, wood is a very subjective thing and I like to see what I am getting. :roll:

John,

Nice joints. I think it would make a rather suitable entry for the competition, but I ain't running it....

Great project, John. The pictures are a bit small for these old eyes, but it looks beautiful - if you can work out how to post a bigger image, I for one would love to see it :).

Beautiful piece, my favourite timber and a very nice finish.

This spindle moulder must give a great pleasure to use, those joints are very interesting :D

One day I'll get my planer and I'll do something is solid Oak, one day... :?

Hi Tx,

The top rails are lipped with a detail trim. This is neccessary to cover the top of the stiles, otherwise the joint would show.



The lid edge was routed with an ogee.


Pete W, sorry about picture size - I am just getting the hang of this picture lark and are still working out how to size correctly !! :oops:

John,

Lovely job; and done even though hampered by the Maxi! :wink: Unless my fellow judges disagree (PM me chaps), consider yourself entered. :D

Cheers, Alf
