18th century "super bowl"
« on: February 03, 2018, 10:02:45 PM »
      I'm contemplating making a bombe chest of drawers in the future.
      I have the plans from the website by Ed Stuckey for a Bombe chest with a flat front or I was also thinking about one with a serpentine or bowl front. Question is: would it be "correct"/OK/permissible to have two piece sides, and /or a two piece top? Obtaining 20"+ very wide 3" mahogany is a quite pricy and no local dealers presently have any. The same for wide 20"+ 4/4 for the top. But glued up (2pc) narrower 3" stock for the sides and 12" 8/4 to be re-sawn for a book-matched top is an option that's locally availible.
Any opinions or thoughts?  Thanks
