Woodworker, Episode 2b

















I revised my schematics with approximate measurements, some construction details and a sketch of how the lid and the floor are supposed to be constructed. The floorboards are not joined together - they will be put into a groove cut along the nether part of the chest walls, and will be supported by underlying beams slotted into the leg boards.

Do you have the book 'Die Gotischen Truhen der Lüneburger Heideklöster'? I found it very enlightening to read/browse. It contains a catalogue of some 100 late medieval / early modern chests and plans on how the different types among them were constructed.

That book sounds like a gold mine! Is it out of print, like all good books, or is it available for a small penny at Amazon?
