Another project comes to a close in the shop.
The cellerats are progressing along. The drawers are finished. The cock beading around the fronts is apple wood.
The stands have been glued, molding mitered and attached, case support in place, and drawer runners attached. Next will be building the drawers. Thess are reproductions of 18th century N.C. cellerats. Reproductions are more tedious . This is because I am trying to be as close to the original as possible.
The first stand has been fitted up. There will be a cross stretcher added between the side stretcher. I won’t be adding anything for a few days. I’ve got to get ready for the Ramsey House Country Fair.
The model will be used just like a set of drawings. The purpose is to take measurements directly from the the different parts of the model.
