Korean Chest of Drawers

Postby Woodbloke » 27 May 2018, 17:53

First dry run through of a modern Korean styled chest of drawers...4 large ones and 8 small. This one has been incredibly difficult to work out how to put it together, owing to the convoluted and complex way I've decided to make it :( The complexity lies in the fact that the verticals follow through from the floor (inc the stand, not shown 'cos I haven't made it yet :lol: ) to the top panels without a break:

The easiest way I could think of to fix the front of the drawer frames to the legs was by using a pocket hole ( 'oles filled eventually)

The ply/gash mdf 'boxes' are there to act as spacers to ensure the drawer frames are dead parallel and these will too will eventually be trashed. The spaces between the frames will be filled with brown oak panels and all edges will be softly rounded over using a 3.2mm rad router bit. Drawer fronts in Brown Oak as well, Ebony handles.

Jointing with 10mm doms, 8mm dowels using my 'Dowelmax' jig, ph screws and 50mm Torx screws. It's a bit of a proverbial 'dogs dinner' at the moment, but it's slowly coming together - Rob

Is there a drawing of what this will look like?

Google image search for Korean chest of drawers came back with quite a variety of chests. Most had many small drawers and quite a few had turned up ends to the top surface. Beyond that I have no idea what a Korean chest of drawers looks like and I can't guess much from your framework. Knowing what you have made in the past though I have no doubt it will be stunning.

Good to see that you are not twiddling your thumbs Rob. I am sure you will need to move house soon to accommodate your recent output.
cheers

if images are not visible on my posts it is because Photobucket withdrew their free hosting service. I will reload images to the most recent threads in due course. Please drop me a PM if you would like to see anything before then

This is to replace a pine chest of drawers (made from laminated B&Q board) quickly lashed together when my daughter was at home some years ago whilst studying for her MA. No.1 son has subsequently 'claimed' the old one for his new gaff in Londres :D - Rob

Surprisingly, the Japanese have produced very little in noteworthy furniture - Rob

Nasty bit of sapwood there Rob :lol:

I presume you have not used any stain on the dark parts? otherwise a devil of a job to keep it out of the lighter wood or have you been cunning?

These eastern designs that that you favour Rob really aren't my thing at all.........but I am very much looking forward to seeing the the 3-way mitred corner joints. Plenty of photos of that from setting out through the cutting and fitting, please!

A few more images with the plywood drawer spacers removed. Currently, a 3.2mm rad roundover bit is being used on the internal corners prior to machining the 10mm groove for the panels.
