The drawers are fit, and the bookmatched figured box elder drawer fronts are looking good. Piston-fit drawers can be a bit nerve-wracking to fit, but with a sharp, fine-cutting hand plane, the usual bumps and oddities can be found with some ease.
These will get some recessed pulls, but the rest of the work on this box will have to wait until next week – I’m off to Baltimore to help @lostartpress with a photo shoot for the upcoming revision of Jennie Alexander’s Make a Chair from a Tree! When I return, the brass and pulls should be waiting for me, ready to be shaped and fitted.
