I’m very happy with the way these substantial pieces sit in the finished kitchen. They complement the other solid items, such as the Aga, whilst the geometric patterns prevent everything looking too bulky.www.danieltomlinson.co.uk
I then had to decide on the direction of the grain for each piece by doing a rough sketch.
There are many ways to cut veneer. The curves on both designs all have the same radius, so I bought a gouge with a curve that is near to what I need and roll it around the curve to get it as close as possible.I gradually piece the pattern together with veneer tape to form a patchwork. This is how it looks underneath…www.danieltomlinson.co.uk
I’m making a kitchen dresser out of solid oak. Here’s a sketch of it… and here’s the oak…I’ve written about planing, thicknessing and rough dimensioning in previous posts, so here is the carcass put together without glue. (dry fit)Once I’ve sanded all the panels I’m going to coat them with a shellac-based sanding sealer before glueing. I’ll then make all the door frames and dovetail the drawers. Stay tuned…
