« Part 2: Carcass Glue up and drawer front choices Part 3 of Gum Entry Table series Part 4: Ready for final sanding and finish »

Drawers made and glued, but not fitted of finished, top roughed in. Starting to look like something.

I wish I had gone with three tails, but the two are growing on me. The drawer is so short, I never thought of going three (though I do half blind 99% of the time).

I have not touched my hand saw in months, so the first two dovetails were gappy, but muscle memory kicked in after that. Nothing that my filler made from saw dust and shellac can’t handle.

I have to agree fully!

I scrolled back looking for the species but could not find an answer to my question so,

1. What species is it? and,
2. Some sort of fancy HCM at work?
3. where are the drawers on their own?
4. Just what is a Gum entry?
wait there is more, pretty neat workshop!
5. whats that big blue drum for?

-- Regards Rob

I like the idea of full dovetails showing on the drawer font. With all of the random patterns and colors in the wood, the dovetail ends will make a nice contrast.

It is “gum” wood. the “entry” part is an entry table…i.e. kept near the door for the normal accumulation of keys etc. It could also work as a sofa table.

I don’t understand the question about drawers, but the next set of images may clarify it. The drum is where my scraps go. It fills up from April to November and gets emptied from November to April as kindling for fires in the stove.
