Huntboards come in many sizes but this one is modest in scale and execution. It is a very versatile piece and adaptable to one's particular needs. For example, the two larger drawers can be converted to hinged doors. The piece may be easily be extended in length and still retain elegant proportions. Modeled after huntboards found in Virginia, this one is connected with pinned mortise and tenon joints. The upper top rail is locked into the top of the legs and the sides with dovetails. Drawer fronts are surrounded by a cock bead and the lower frame is fitted with non-glued dust panels to avoid expansion/contraction issues.

    Ever wish you could get a digital project plan that allowed you to customize the design to suit your own needs? Here they are! Digital project plans in SketchUP, the free Google drawing program.

    Are there any other advantages? For starters, you'll get your plan immediately. Your digital plan will consist of drawings in PDF format, with detailed, measured drawings and a cutlist. Full-size drawings are included for critical parts and templates. All of the drawings can be printed on a typical consumer-grade computer printer -- the larger template drawings can be taped together or you can take the file on a disc or flash drive (or email) to a local copy center for printing on Arch D size paper. The projects also have written instructions to guide you through construction process. If you want to modify one of the projects, the SketchUp version of the plan will be perfect for you.

    Available free from Google by clicking here, SketchUp allows you to manipulate the drawing and make as many changes as you like to fit your needs -- or make more substantial changes to the design. You're limited only by your creativity.
