Got in a few minutes after work today to route out the stopped dado for the shelf and the rabbets on the shelves.
After dinner, I’m going to try to pare down the dovetails a bit and trim the stopped edge of the shelf to fit.

Checkerboard Mini-Tansu. I had a lot of fun playing around with how to arrange and align the patterns. Nice effect from doing all five fronts as one piece. With me here at Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. I’ll be here today, tomorrow, and Sunday during the day.

How I ended up using the large sheet of Borromean Rings I made last weekend. It will be with me in Philadelphia tomorrow through Sunday.

I didn’t make it into the shop yesterday, but I worked quickly today and got all the pins trimmed up. Here’s the first full dry fit. I think I’ll pare the super tight joints just a bit, some of them are scary tight. It would be a shame to crack something since I’ll probably be right up against the deadline on this.

So after the trimming is done, that will be the end of the hand tool portion. I’ll be rabbeting the back and sides, and then routing a dado to accept a small shelf before installing the back. I hope that doesn’t disqualify me from the hand cut dovetail challenge. I don’t have the tools or the time (or the skill) to do the other stuff by hand 🤷‍♂️

Here’s the final cake knife of last week with bonus coordinating cutting board. The cake knife is a santoku style blade in figured black walnut and the grip is curly birch.
The cutting board is maple, jatoba and more of the curly birch. Swipe to see a video of the chatoyance in the shop lights. If you’ve never worked with birch, I’d suggest you get some to try out. I find it’s workable like walnut but holds up more like maple. Nice stuff.
Congrats to my cousin Natalie and her husband Nathan!

I’ve had a run of cake knives this past week. Here’s the second, on its was out today. This is another maple chef’s blade with zebra wood handle and black walnut bolster. This one is a bit different than the last though. I kept a substantial grip and when I resawed the zebrawood, I decided to flip it for a mirrored grain pattern instead of continuous like on the last one. Swipe through for a couple detail shots.

Putting the finishing touches on the Three Drawer Jewelry Chest (needs a better name). Come by Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia this Friday thru Sunday (Oct 12-14) to see it. I’ll be there as part of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen’s Annual Fall Craft Show.
