« Part 25: Queen Anne Side Table - Dovetailed top rail and scroll work Part 26 of The Craftsman's Path series Part 27: Queen Anne Side Table - Dovetailing the drawer »

With the joinery completed on the table I set out to pull all of the pieces together. In this post I tackled the glue up of the table carcase and top along with the building and installation of the drawer runner assembly. With this completed the next step will be building the dovetailed drawer. Take a look and let me know what you think – thanks for reading!

It’s looking good so far! I can’t wait to see the finished piece!

Queen Anne style pieces are without a doubt my favorite.
If this is all I ever built, I’d be a very happy man.

Looks great!

Queen Anne is my favorite as you can tell by looking at my projects.

Yours looks great.

Thanks, all. The Queen Anne style is definitely very attractive and also interesting to build. Getting closer on this one – the dovetailed drawer construction is next. Then I need to decide how I am going to finish it.

Bob – Thanks for the compliments. However, I’ve seen your lowboy and you did a very finy job on it yourself!

Scott- Thanks. I’m glad to hear that you like the step-by-step posting of the project. I’ve always been partial to seeing how things evolve both in their design and construction. So, I thought others would as well.
