Dry fit begins
I got in a bit of shop-time this weekend and began the long-awaited dry-fit of the Greene and Greene desks. I fitted and glued-up 6 of the 8 "frames" of legs for the desks. Two more to go, and then the fun really beings as I work to fit-up the fronts and backs. I’m pleased with the results so far. My Bessey clamps prove once again that they are the best in my view.
I’m trying to figure out which method to use to do the detail of the irregular box-joints on the drawers. The Popular Woodworking blog has recently posted two methods, here: Gamble House Drawers and here: Gamble House Drawers Alt . Both methods have advantages and disadvantages.
