planing the rear stiles; upper case

Just a video post today, about planing the odd-shaped five-sided rear stiles to the upper case. Here’s a sketch of the plan of the upper case – and in it you can see the cross-section of those stiles, both front & rear. All the rails have 90-degree shoulders, so the stiles are shaped to create the three-sided overall format.

Here’s both the front & rear stiles, next step for these will be mortising.

  1. Beautiful work. I didn’t realize there were multiple examples of that same cabinet. I just assumed they were all one-offs.

  2. Such interesting furniture forms. I like the repeated use of turned elements and the color contrast. Thanks for the interesting blog posts and videos!
