« Part 5: Corbels, Arc, Mortises & First Dry Fit Part 6 of Entryway Arts & Crafts Mirror & Storage Bench series no next part

Sorry for dropping this project blog. Life got busy and I wasn’t able to keep posting blog entries here on LumberJocks, but here are the highlights from the posts on my personal site. It’s done! :D

I had a few delays

I paused the project to figure out a finishing formula

Quadrilinear Legs, Bookmatched Panels, Arcs, Frame & Panel Progress

Made my own scratch stock

Ran into trouble resawing for a bookmatched bench lid

Another delay

Scratch beading, floor boards, and the worst possible thing that could have happened.

Delay so I can order more lumber, make a new bench lid

Butterfly Inlay by hand

Yet another mishap

Handcut Dovetails for the Sliding Till

Applying the Finish, Glue-up not pictured.

Attaching the Hardware

And finally... the project is complete.
