Whenever I do a piece as large and imposing as this Walnut Secretary, I like to break the work down into the major components that join together to make the whole. In this case the Secretary.
The photos are of building the feet for this desk. At this stage very little is fastened together.
I may build the Prospect box or go to work on the uppercase. I always feel better when the major parts are completed. If I mess up a drawer, I’m not “happy”, but a mistake on the case is “devastating “.
Yes, I still make mistakes! Keeps one humble.
