Walnut: Trials and Joining

Utilizing the natural contours of our native black walnut within confines of a more strict geometry.


Building up a trapezoidal chest panel.

Ebonized walnut splines.

Rough idea of the panel with a 3/16″ reveal (ultimately) of the splines.


Scribed half-lap, upper left.

Dovetails, upper right.

Scribed lap joint with key, lower right.

Whole frame.  The lower left corner is a doweled butt-joint.

    1. The frame is for the colored print of Job that I posted recently. I’ll post up a picture when it is all done.
