Finally posting some shots of a piece I completed a few months back. Definitely the most technical piece to date, shop sawn walnut veneer exterior with alaskan yellow cedar interior, hand cut dovetailed drawers and shop made brass hardware.
The most time consuming part of the build was this joint below. After a few practice joints in poplar I was good to go. The difficulty in this joint was that it's mirrored on the other side of the leg and also a compound curve and taper in the leg.
Below is a better look at the compound curve, subtle but time consuming...
Another degree of difficulty I wanted to have was brining the leg through to the top, worth the time and a fun detail in this piece.
I had been saving the walnut log for me time, waiting for an opportunity to make a piece like this. I wanted to incorporate the sapwood from the outside and create a center line from book matching the to veneer cuts, running them continuously around the piece.
