The links are working now. I suspect they have a daily download limit.
Nice videos, clear and well presented.
I also like the bench top workbench.

That's weird......is'nt that the purpose of drop box? Maybe another platform, like instagram? But I think there is a limit on video length/time.

I was just notified that these Dropbox links have been suspended by Dropbox due to too much traffic!


I'm not sure what to do about it. I wonder if there is anyway to upload these to SAPFM and have them stored there?

Thanks for the feedback rac50. This is exactly what I was looking for when I posted here. It is too bad to hear about Gottshall's books. I think I may have the book on carving. Can't put my hands on it at this time...


I think if I can get a rough idea of the size to make the low boy I think I could figure it out.


I know this is a website for people who are building period reproductions and I appreciate that. I am just trying to improve upon what I can currently do. The chest in this thread gave me the opportunity to build ogee feet for the first time and the author did a great job telling how he built it. I have not made anything with a Queen Anne style leg and I would like to make that next.


Cheers!

B.Higgins,  I would highly recommend you obtain the book: Carving 18th CenturyAmerican Furniture Elements written by Tony Kubalak, our current Cartouche Award winner. I have all the Gottshall books and am familiar with the lowboy. His books are outdated and were written before folks were allowed direct access to many of the museums where many of this membership access information for their projects. His drawings of the carvings are inaccurate and his measurements seem to be educated guesses. With that said he and other authors of that era kept interest alive in American period furniture. I just checked my favorite book site which is www.dealoz.com and the book is available for less than $20.00  Good luck!  Ross

Thank you for replying macchips4!
 
I just use a carving gouge for cutting the cope joint.  An in-cannel would work well but I do not have one. I made several short videos of the process of fitting the rails to the stiles for a planned SAPFM ZOOM meeting I was trying to set-up for the Iroquois chapter (which never happened because I could only get a couple people to respond!)  I would be happy to share these, but they total 1.7 Gig for all six files (total time = 16 minutes.)  If anyone is really interested, I could share a Dropbox link. Attached are some screen prints of forming the cope, and pictures of the cabinets with the doors sitting in the openings.
I learned the cope joint for the doors on my Spice-Box-on-Frame (Gene Landon Olde Mill class 2001), and did a ton of them on my Pewter Press (2003 class) for the two 10 pane doors.  In the last ten years I’ve made something like 50 raised panels with cope joints for my kitchen and bathroom cabinets and wall units – which explains why this stepback hutch is my first big fun project in years!
 
The butternut did have some fuzziness after hand planing.  I hardly ever sand any surfaces other than on some molding profiles and to break sharp corners, but on this project, I decided to hand-sand the entire piece before shellacking.

Thanks to all for your nice comments. We are enjoying it!


Thanks to the original poster for taking time to share so much!


Next project will be a low boy based on the one in Franklin Gottshall's book Reproducing Antique Furniture. Got the walnut sourced and should start on it in the next couple weeks.

I always found butternut to be "fuzzy" Almost too soft . Need to have very sharp tools, always sharpening.........
