Tis the gift to be simple

Here is the little chest of drawers I made last year.

Chest of drawers

The drawers were made several years ago, as part of a desk/dresser for Aoife. Notice the blind dovetail joints!

    a darn sight better than the oul yoke beside it. Nice one, fancy drawers!

    did you make that out of your own head?

  3. recumbentman Says:

    Yes, and I’ve enough wood left for another one!

    good (wood)work!

    I loved that hefty dresser/desk you made me. Glad you recycled the best bits! Heath’s recycling a camping cooking pot from Auntie P that’s the perfect size to add to a stove pipe in his workshop, named “The Hut” in honour of Wally’s Hut.

    Would never have dreamt you had such wooden drawers let alone had made them yourself. Looks like fine craftmanship

  7. recumbentman Says:

    Why thank you Richard! Malachy cast aspersions on the Rough Deal chest of drawers beside mine, but in fact I copied several details from that. I wouldn’t call it fine work, but it goes in and out like anything.
