      That's pretty good DW...!!
      I don't see any kind of joint, miter or otherwise...
      What did you do, carve out the recess..?!? Then make a drawer to fit??

      Nice work...!!!!

        Really nice job, DW.

        Jim, my guess is that the wood is cut along the grain then glued back, since I'm assuming that the drawer is from the same block of wood, but I haven't figured it out yet, either. However it's made, it's really nice!

          Carole has it right. I cut along the grain and carefully glued it back together. Mahogany has a good straight grain which allowed me to do this one. The pivot is a hidden 1/4 in. dowel.

                Very nice. I thought it was carved.

                For you and hotshot , remember to hide notes, chicken bones or beer cans in the stud cavities for the next remodeler to find.

                I am partial to the folks who hide plastic skeletons in dead spaces under stairs, etc.

                by Ennobee
                My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                Hi Jim.
                glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...
