A Ming-Inspired Cabinet (31)

Continuing on with the stretcher cut out and fitting. With the long side stretchers fitted to each post, the posts and stretchers could be assembled together and then fitted to the beams:


Down she goes:


The fits are pretty close to where I want them, however there will be some tweaking to come at a later point:

The parts have a larger appearance at this time as there has been no chamfering or other detailing on the parts:

This is stand #2, which has had the short stretchers fitted. The long stretchers are through the cut out phase but not yet fitted:

Thanks for visiting the Carpentry Way. On to post 32

Anything to add?
