In the first post I showed how I made the legs and the top. I’ll leave the vises for the assembly part. And now, I’m making shelves, there are two of them. The upper one is quite thing, made of a single sheet. I’m making a frame for it out of steamed pear wood, just for fun.
At first, shelf itself.
Then the frame. On the photo you can see how I’m making a mortise.
I just love pinterest! Among all those boards on antique furniture – sometimes there are real treasures. This time I found some good recommendations on books about furniture history. Books are shipped, but before this wonderful discovery I bought some really good books too.
