In my last article, I discussed the history of boarded (nailed) furniture and tried to get you as excited about it as I am. In this article, I’ll explore one sort of boarded carcase. Though the finished project won’t look like a country hutch or cupboard, the construction will be close or identical. This sort of furniture is fun to build and can be easily completed in a weekend with nothing but a few hand tools. The skills you hone building this sort of furniture will directly translate to building finer pieces.
