New Furniture

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.

Oh this is lovely Elga! I love sewing tables. And I love furniture which has moving/sliding parts. So for me, this is a winner!

I very much enjoy seeing your work progress!

If this piece of furniture looks like the real one when you finish it,it would be one of the most impressive miniature furniture that I would have ever seen .
