This image shows a completed drawer.
A close up of the dovetails.
Here I have begun to concentrate on the handles. I have sketched some ideas for the client to see. I’ve made a mock up in walnut which is temporarily fixed to the drawer front to see what it looks like. The actual handles are made in ebony.
Beginning work on the handles here, cutting pieces for the sides of the handles on the table saw.
I use the router table to put a half round on the ends of the side pieces.
I then drill holes for the cross piece to locate in.
Here I am beginning to form the round tenon which will locate in the drawer front. I’m making 2 side pieces on each length.
The curved outside edge of the side pieces are formed using a large diameter drill bit.
Once all the shaping is done I divide the lengths into 2. At this stage the tenon is still square.
Here I’m shaping the square tenon into a dowel.
