This is going to be a sliding lid (by request) and I’m going to have to be really careful with that brittle sapwood. I’ve already marked out for the lid thickness and I’ll cut the dado first, then match the lid (since I have more wood than box!).
As promised, a 1/8” sash will execute this slow-going dado.
Remove the top ever so carefully to give myself some walls. Then, I’ll use the sash bevel-down to clear out the dado, cleaning up the walls as necessary with a straight chisel.
OK, they’re done. Feels more stable than I expected. I hope the oil helps the dryness.
Now, to cut one pin board to accept the drawer and fashion the drawer. Thanks for looking!
