This is my 1 year anniversary of making videos! After a year making these videos, I finally talk a bit about why I started. This past week, Nick Ferry was with me in the shop learning to hand cut half blind dovetails. In the shop I continued working on the upper case for the secretary. I got the face frame attached, cut and prepped the horizontal cubbyhole dividers and prepped the vertical cubbyhole dividers. The most exciting thing that I started was the fan carvings. I’ve never done any carving before, so these will be a learning experience. So far I’ve just roughed out the curve.
To start things off, I’ll make the panel which will become the sides and top. While that’s sitting in the clamps, I’ll prep the material
