    If the strips are just secured with just one stylish rivet in the middle of the board at the ribs it will let it move across the grain. The strips would need tapered overlap on the edges to allow for...

    Scott, epoxy holds up just fine for regular joints, often stronger than wood glue. Your 1/2” joint is a concern as the leverage of a leg against such a joint is huge. Whatever your glue it could...

    It is just a matter of taking up the slack between the divider edge and the carcass. This stops the side of the carcass from being pushed in. The peg might not seem like much but when there is a...

    Yes the front square mortice locks the drawer shelves in place because they are not all the way to the back. Given that the dadoes and joints are just knock together, no glue on them, there is no...

    Lovely bench Tom, no small task. Like you I favour the (Tage Frid, James Krenov, Frank Klausz) Danish style bench that the Danes built for the Swedes. That was implanted at 14 in my case.
