Ogee Bracket feet blind dovetailed

To me there was evidence that this desk had ogee bracket feet . Any time I make ogee bracket feet they are blind dovetailed together. Not all old feet were done this way. Most of the time they were mitered and butt jointed. The back feet are half blind dovetailed. I was taught to build furniture second to none and I apply that to my restoration as well. In another post I will show how to make blind dovetailed ogee bracket feet.

The cellerats are finished.

Another project comes to a close in the shop.


The finishing has begun.

Finishing is always my favorite time in a project. The finish brings out the rich color of the wood. After so long sitting in the white the wood comes alive when the finish is applied.
