1310. Tile Front Chest
This small chest has tiles for drawer fronts. The basic black chest accents the earth tone tiles used as drawer fronts, which are glued to the drawer boxes.
The drawer boxes have dovetail joinery and fit flush with the chest facings.
Small clips between each two-drawer section allow a stacking system that makes it easy to extend the chest to the size desired.
A brass knob in the centre of each drawer matches the feet and clips used and set off the tile design in the drawer front. In episode 1310 of the Router Workshop,
Bob and Rick guide us step by step through the construction of the Tile Front Chest.
Thanks. None of the links shown reveal the source of the dovetail jig used on the show to make the little drawers. Bob calls them "irregular" dovetails. They look a little like isoloc from leigh, but the jig is much simpler.
Thanks for the references, but I would like to know if this jig is available, or what was modified to create the jig used on the show.
