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.
