If your skill level isn't top notch across the board, you will have lots of challenges. Your shop tools had better be top notch also, everything sharp, square and true. As already mentioned, this is not a beginner project. I see carving, turning and cabinetmaking. Would be a beautiful piece! I hope it's not one you are trying to bid to make a profit, if asking how hard it is to make.

Moderate difficulty. You will need to be a decent turner. Also the turned legs on the corners of the carcass will need to be relieved requiring jigs etc. The rest looks pretty straightforward unless you want to veneer witch requires its own skillset. I would bid high and not care if I get it though.

I also need to put a concave profile into the top of the leg. Can I use to different size spade bits?

These are pretty basic questions that if you have to ask, you should maybe consider something like a birdhouse before taking a project like this on.

Putting a concave profile in the end of a table leg is a simple question. Yea right.

Dave,
Per your responses and info you gave us, my thoughts are you should first: prove to yourself some skills necessary for this project. If you don't have the skills, learn them and practice them on test pieces until you feel comfortable doing them on expensive wood. You need to understand a lot of different skills and knowledge of wood to tackle this type of project. If you ask basic questions,
expect skilled people to doubt your skills when asking them or just insult you for asking. Have you taken any classes or been employed by a furniture maker?
Most people on this site are professionals and will give advice but a lot have little patience for beginners trying to gain that knowledge. Everyone has been a beginner at some point so please have patience with information others give. As far as the "others" let's give him encouragement and maybe guidance on how best to accomplish what he is asking.
Now my personal opinion, mortise and tenon joints on the leg to stretcher joints and why the weird drilling on top of the legs? That one doesn't make sense to me but what do I know, I've only been building stuff for close to 40 years.

Here's the issue:

"FORUM GUIDELINES: Please review the guidelines below before posting at WOODWEB's Interactive Message Boards (return to top)

WOODWEB is a professional industrial woodworking site. Hobbyist and homeowner woodworking questions are inappropriate."

It seems that many respondents share the view that OP is a hobbyist based on the post. That might or might not be true. However, given that the "rules of the road" are that this is a website for professionals as clearly stated in the guidelines, some snark for what appears to be a hobbyist question is to be expected. There are plenty of woodworking sites for hobbyists and some of us feel like we need to defend the boundaries of WOODWEB.

Non-snarky respondents are being extremely generous.

Local trade schools often have adult education evening woodworking classes. Given your questions I would suggest looking into that possibility. After taking one or two of those courses you could make this cabinet as your class project.

Meanwhile, as others have mentioned, this is a professional site. If you peruse previous messages you'll find discussions on quite complex industry related topics. You would do much better on a site such as Fine Woodworking for example.

FORUM GUIDELINES: Please review the guidelines below before posting at WOODWEB's Interactive Message Boards (return to top)

  • WOODWEB is a professional industrial woodworking site. Hobbyist and homeowner woodworking questions are inappropriate.
  • Messages should be kept reasonably short and on topic, relating to the focus of the forum. Responses should relate to the original question.
  • A valid email return address must be included with each message.
  • Advertising is inappropriate. The only exceptions are the Classified Ads Exchange, Machinery Exchange, Lumber Exchange, and Job Opportunities and Services Exchange. When posting listings in these areas, review the posting instructions carefully.
  • Subject lines may be edited for length and clarity.
  • "Cross posting" is not permitted. Choose the best forum for your question, and post your question at one forum only.
  • Messages requesting private responses will be removed - Forums are designed to provide information and assistance for all of our visitors. Private response requests are appropriate at WOODWEB's Exchanges and Job Opportunities and Services.
  • Messages that accuse businesses or individuals of alleged negative actions or behavior are inappropriate since WOODWEB is unable to verify or substantiate the claims.
  • Posts with the intent of soliciting answers to surveys are not appropriate. Contact WOODWEB for more information on initiating a survey.
  • Excessive forum participation by an individual upsets the balance of a healthy forum atmosphere. Individuals who excessively post responses containing marginal content will be considered repeat forum abusers.
  • Responses that initiate or support inappropriate and off-topic discussion of general politics detract from the professional woodworking focus of WOODWEB, and will be removed.
  • Participants are encouraged to use their real name when posting. Intentionally using another persons name is prohibited, and posts of this nature will be removed at WOODWEB's discretion.
  • Comments, questions, or criticisms regarding Forum policies should be directed to WOODWEB's Systems Administrator

    Carefully review your message before clicking on the "Send Message" button - you will not be able to revise the message once it has been sent.

    WOODWEB's forums are a highly regarded resource for professional woodworkers. Messages and responses that are crafted in a professional and civil manner strengthen this resource. Messages that do not reflect a professional tone reduce the value of our forums.

    Messages are inappropriate when their content: is deemed libelous in nature or is based on rumor, fails to meet basic standards of decorum, contains blatant advertising or inappropriate emphasis on self promotion (return to top).

    Libel:   Posts which defame an individual or organization, or employ a tone which can be viewed as malicious in nature. Words, pictures, or cartoons which expose a person or organization to public hatred, shame, disgrace, or ridicule, or induce an ill opinion of a person or organization, are libelous.

    Improper Decorum:   Posts which are profane, inciting, disrespectful or uncivil in tone, or maliciously worded. This also includes the venting of unsubstantiated opinions. Such messages do little to illuminate a given topic, and often have the opposite effect. Constructive criticism is acceptable (return to top).

    Advertising:   The purpose of WOODWEB Forums is to provide answers, not an advertising venue. Companies participating in a Forum discussion should provide specific answers to posted questions. WOODWEB suggests that businesses include an appropriately crafted signature in order to identify their company. A well meaning post that seems to be on-topic but contains a product reference may do your business more harm than good in the Forum environment. Forum users may perceive your references to specific products as unsolicited advertising (spam) and consciously avoid your web site or services. A well-crafted signature is an appropriate way to advertise your services that will not offend potential customers. Signatures should be limited to 4-6 lines, and may contain information that identifies the type of business you're in, your URL and email address (return to top).

    Repeated Forum Abuse: Forum participants who repeatedly fail to follow WOODWEB's Forum Guidelines may encounter difficulty when attempting to post messages.

    There are often situations when the original message asks for opinions: "What is the best widget for my type of shop?". To a certain extent, the person posting the message is responsible for including specific questions within the message. An open ended question (like the one above) invites responses that may read as sales pitches. WOODWEB suggests that companies responding to such a question provide detailed and substantive replies rather than responses that read as a one-sided product promotion. It has been WOODWEB's experience that substantive responses are held in higher regard by our readers (return to top).
