Even Better

It is so nice getting back into the swing of daily woodworking.  Today was delightful.  My approach to the tail, for the other side of the drawer, was exactly as I did the one yesterday.  The result was even better.

The experience reminds me of all the tiny boxes I made.  When I started to do the same task, multiple times, my skill improved.  This makes complete sense, so I am not surprised.  This in no way deminishes the joy I felt at sliding the tail into the pins and having it fit so nicely.

I don’t know the inner workings of the mind of a seasoned woodworker, but mine  loves gaining confidence.  As soon as I completed the second tail, I thought about what I should do next.  For the drawer I need to try a set of half blind, so that will be next.   After that, it seems logical to move on to two tails and three pins, which will be more difficult than the simple version I have done.

There is a woodworker, which I follow on Twitter, whose handle is @derrevo.  He is incredibly talented.  He recently completed 3 drawers with half blind dovetails, which turned out beautifully.  These weren’t regular half blind dovetails either.  The drawer fronts were curved!   His blog is fantastic, so check it out.  Derrevo is the name of the blog.  The previous link will take you to the blog piece which shows his incredible work.

He explained that he had spent one month practicing with poplar, then switched to the good wood for another month.  He did all of this before attempting them on the workpiece.  That is incredible dedication and it inspires me.  I am a long way from even considering such a creative drawer front.

So now my mind is dancing with thoughts of the drawer I will make, for the table I am designing.  The legs are hard maple, which is very light in color.  I like contrast, so right now I am leaning towards some of my walnut, or perhaps some wenge.  The hard maple and wenge really looked good in tiny box form, so I bet it would be wonderful for the table.

This is part of the fun of woodworking, the design.  I haven’t played with google sketch up in over a year.  I may dig it out and do some mock ups.  Or maybe I won’t, it is hard to say.  Right now, I am enjoying leaning back in my green chair, turning the 3 pieces of drawer over and over in my hands, and using my brain skectch up.
