I have been working on a new piece of furniture these last 2 months and I am finally making some progress now that I have all my tools sorted out. I am using Mopane wood for this piece of furniture.Hopefully mine will look as good as the original when it is finished, this is an early 19th century sewing table with a sliding screen in the back to protect Milady's face from the heat of the fire and you can see it here.
I am actually making five of them and they all have owners already. Here you can see the 5 sets of fronts and backs, the scrap piece in the one back is where I milled out a slot for the sliding screen, quite a tricky little job. I am still going to cut off the square parts on the bottom of the legs, they help to keep everything square while gluing.
