Here we are again. This time its time to cut the fingers on the two remaining pieces, F and B. B the back piece also has the hinge fingers for the lid. Basically offer up the relevant side, in this case Left (already cut) to Front and mark the cutouts with the knife blade.
Do this for both sides of Front and Back (plus the top of the back piece) and cut out all the hinge fingers.
Use the same method as before for cutting the single walnut piece for both F and B. Then slide the single walnut piece into each of the side pieces (walnut side inwards). Do for both F and B.
Push on the relevant Sycamore/Sapele pieces for the Front
This will allow me to mark how much is to be removed off the end of the finger (waste) in preparation for sanding this off and rounding the hinge finger ends.
From this pic you may be able to see that I’ve had a bit of a problem with the hinge fingers for the back/top. The grain is following for these and this causes weakness. I may have to brace them with a 0.5mm strip either side in the final assembly, making that particular hinge 4mm as opposed to 3mm which the four corner hinges will be.
Getting tired now.
Be seeing you.
