I am looking at your “glass sided quilt display chest”, pg 93, “Treasure Chests”, and would like to ask you some questions.
At first it looked like post and rail construction, but now I think you used mitered corners with rails. Which method, or am I entirely wrong?
The bottom construction has me baffled! Please explain your method.
I made one of these for a lady, and hope to make others for the local quilting crowd. I routed a rabbit around the glued up rails and stiles, assembled the case and had the local glass man cut and set the glass. He used too much cement, leaving a thick bead. The picture looks like you cut grooves into the wood, dropped in the glass and assembled the piece. Please explain.
One last question: why didn’t you hinge the top to the case?
Beautiful work! I especially like the turned feet and the softened corners.
