11914RE: [MedievalSawdust] Mastermyr chest
- Oct 18, 2009
Those compound angles are more complicated than they look at first glance, and should not be approached “casually.” My chest is two inches smaller in all direction. The joinery was so gappy and ugly I had to go back and re-cut everything. Instead of measure twice – cut once, go with measure twice – then check with the bevel-gauge again. And then dry fit before cutting the next joint (where possible).
Anyone here done a mastermry reproduction/inspired chest?
What did you learn in the process?
What advice would you offer before I start?
Anything surprise you?
Anything not work like you thought it would?
Thanks in advance!
