A George II Mahogany Reader’s Companion – Part Two

The reader’s companion is all ready for gluing together, but the meteorological forecast isn’t providing me with a sufficient break in the weather in which to dart outside and do the deed. In retrospect, there have been a few missed opportunities in the past couple of days, but I’m not prepared to set up outside in The Lemon Studio until I’m confident of a reasonably fine spell.

So in the interim, and to attest I have actually been making an effort, here’s an image of the progress to date.

Reader’s companion – just add glue and polish.

    Good to know you weren’t sitting around like those indolent book readers.

    The photo shows a groove near the top of the back wall, to accomodate the top shelf, so I assume that the rear legs have corresponding dados below the, uh, in-cannels. Do these in-cannels also extend below the dados, down to the lower shelf/table? That would seem hard to do – or maybe they exist only at the top of the legs?

    This is a lovely piece, and seems to be exactly what I need beside a certain reading sofa. Best wishes, Mr. Plane.
