Some recently finished work

Got some photography done the other day…this one’s a joined chest that I have had around a while. I was waiting to hinge it until I could photograph the process. This is the one with the wooden hinges. Here’s the front view

You can see this chest in process during the Lie-Nielsen video I did on making a joined chest.

First the wooden hinge; then the interior view, with the till.

  1. I like the way the beveled edges of the center rails terminate on an unbeveled section of the stiles whose bevels in turn terminate on unbeveled long rail sections. It really pulls my eye along the contours.

    Do you chisel the lambs tongue first then bevel to it? or some other process? thanks!

  2. Still very uneasy about knobs on ends of pintel hinge pins but I guess I can prove they’re a-historical either. But the raking light pics are great! I am recommending that the Winterthur conservation students study the Dedham-Medfield chest in the Delaware Room (that pine sheathing closet) very closely.
