My current project is this Huntboard. I call it a huntboard because it is made up of drawers suspended on legs and it has a weightiness and elegance that brings to mind horse country and what goes with it. If you google "Huntboard", you may get varying definitions.
Below is a drawing of the piece and some shots of it going together.
|stock is beaded before joints are cut since the bead becomes part of the joint.|
|this shows the bead continuing around the corners and also shows the pegged tenons.|
|seats for mortices are set into the legs the depth of the bead so that the bead can continue around the corners.|
Below, are the legs and panels which are painted before assembly. This piece will be painted with black milk paint which will be worn to create a warm look with the cherry highlights coming through.
I am now working on the drawers and top. Gotta get back to work. I need to deliver this piece before the end of the month.
Enjoy the rain. We really needed it.
