Well I am trying a true frame and panel case piece. It is a real joy so far.

Here is the progress,

See "Top view, ET center. "


Side view, panels to come.

See "Side view, Frame and Panel"



Well I editied this post with more picts of todays work...

With Panels in place.

Image
See "ET"


Front View, ....

Image
See "ET center"


I am liking this piece. It has a good feel to it. All M&T joints with some over laping within the legs, specifically the center square as it is joined to the side square. (That was fun to lay out :roll: ).

Making the panel grooves line up with the aprins was also a nice experience in good layout.

Now I have to take it all apart and clean it up.

Thanks,

James

Plywood or resaw panels? I was going to use 1/4 oak ply in a recent project until I realized that $1.65 / BF was really $0.83 after the bandsawing. About the same price as the ply. Not to mention I got real grain instead of rotary peel figure for my efforts.

Plywood, my resaw capability is limited by my my band saw. Looming in delivery/order and waiting tax return funds a new Grizzly awaits. But solid panels would be my first choice.

Thanks.

With that new router table you should make raised panels. :D

Looks good so far.

What's it going to be in the end?

Looks like you got some flitch-sawn (though unmatched) veneer rather than rotary peeled. Is it birch backed? Only stuff available around here is rotary peeled with laun underplies. Special order for anything above "B" $urface.

I've got an old Delta with 6" capacity, so I either do glue-ups or more panels.
