This product is a downloadable PDF of the lessons available from the Build A Chippendale Small Chest Online Course. The PDF Course is divided into modules just as those found in the online course. Each lesson contains a video that is embedded into the PDF. (You can watch the video at any time and anywhere as long as it is opened in Adobe Reader, which is a free program). The lessons also include a list of the steps described and demonstrated within that video and lesson.
A Plan Package (complete with front, side and exploded views, patterns and cut list) is part of the PDF Course. (There are eight files to download, some of which are large files. Please allow ample time for the download.)
(Access to the online course is not included, and no membership is required.)
One of the best choices you can make to advance your woodworking skills is to build a case piece, such as this Chippendale small chest of drawers. When taking this online course, it’s as if you’re at the bench with Glen D. Huey as he explains and demonstrates the woodworking techniques he uses to construct this chest from start to finish.
You learn how to hand cut dovetails for case construction, how to join drawer blades to a case, traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery, how to make drawers using hand-cut, through and half-blind dovetails and how to produce shop-made moldings. Glen also tosses in a few techniques to help speed your work without sacrificing the traditional appearance on the completed project. Plus, you learn the exact step-by-step finishing process used to highlight figured grain. It’s sure to make all of your woodworking projects stand out
