Massachusetts_low_chest_front_left_oblique_view.jpg
Massachusetts_low_chest_front_left_oblique_view.jpgLeft oblique view102 viewsThis is a western Massachusetts low chest, more plain and primitive than a Boston-made version. I used Moser's Honey Amber Maple waterborne aniline dye to get the color of aged maple. I applied a single coat of gloss wiping varnish after applying the dye. Next, I applied five coats of one-pound cut amber shellac. I then carefully applied and scrubbed away with mineral spirits a dark glaze in the fillets, corners, etc. to accentuate the moulding details. Last a sixth coat of one-pound cut amber shellac.Sgt42RHR

Massachusetts_low_chest1.jpgRight oblique view85 viewsOne of the features of using tiger maple is that as the eye moves around the piece, the grain changes shape and color. The grain on the right side is particularly striking.Sgt42RHR

Massachusetts_low_chest_dovetails1.jpgDovetailed drawers76 viewsI made the four drawers when I got home from the class. I used dividers to maintain the same spacing ratio on each of the drawers, even though the number of tails changed with each drawer.Sgt42RHR

Massachusetts_low_chest_back_view.jpgBacking boards69 viewsAll secondary wood in this piece is poplar. The backing boards have one coat of one-pound cut amber shellac on them. I was surprised that a couple of the boards were almost brown, unusual for poplar.Sgt42RHR
Massachusetts_low_chest_drawer_pull_hardware.jpg
Massachusetts_low_chest_drawer_pull_hardware.jpgDrawer pulls67 viewsAll hardware was bright brass from Ball & Ball. I painted it all with gun bluing which turned it black, then I steel wooled and polished with Simichrome polish which left patina in the deep recesses and hard to reach spots. In this view, one can also see the effect of the dark glaze applied in the fillet of the thumbnail moulding around the drawers.Sgt42RHR

IMG_6685.JPGdetail of the older leg vise screw mount25 viewsThis may look a bit rough to some, but it is definitely a cleaner installation than the way it was mounted on my grandfather's 80, 90 or more years main bench. This one works quite wel. With two leg vises on the south end mounted 'in plane', it is quite easy to hold short sections (3-5 ft) of lumber for sawing to a line, although the height isn't ideal. Also very useful for holding items when needing to run round tenons with one of the hollow augers.Charlie Driggs

Possible_depth_adjustment.jpg
Possible_depth_adjustment.jpgPossible depth adjuster?11 viewsThis closeup shows what appears to be an unthreaded thumb screw (peg?) in a position that would allow it to be used as a depth adjustment for the possible thickness gauge formed by the spring arm. At present the end of the thumb peg is level with the underside of the arm in which it is affixed. It does not protrude and thus is presently not providing support for the spring arm assembly. The thumb peg is too rusted to move.Sgt42RHR
