I know it’s been a bit since I posted about the project but the last few weeks have been spent finishing up the top, bottom, sides and partitions. I spared you the pics and process just because it is basically the same as the doors except without the curve. So that brought me to the making of the curved frame and panel door for the right side and the curved frame on the front right side which will hold the glass, (the door will have glass too).  Here are the parts for the front frame, and some little 1/8 inch tenons to hold the guy together!

Ok, that’s  done, now onto  some doweling. 

Look

Big dowels,

Cute small dowels for the back post.

So now my favorite part of doweling. putting in a bit of “let go” into the pocket that will house the drawers. This is done a few different ways but I found using a template to place my doweling jig against is the easiest.

We put about a 1/32 of an inch taper in each side of the pocket to make the back about 1/16 bigger. This is done so after the drawer is fit, it can slide freely until the last inch or so then it will pinch in front of the pocket and won’t let the drawer fall out! I think that’s neat. And you get that little woosh of air when you push it back in. That’s real nice;)

So doweling is done. Drink a cold beverage…rest, and breathe, and good night
