I am ready to start constructing the dust panel for this project. Having never made a dust panel I am trying to think through the joinery. Who knows, maybe I’ll answer my own question while writing this post.
Here is the exploded drawing of the dust panel from my SU model. You can click on the image to see the whole thing but this end is just like the other :)
Here is a cutaway jpeg of the dust panel in the case.
What I am unsure of is how to join the drawer runners to the legs (both front and rear). Right now I am thinking pocket joinery. I suppose I could lay them in with M&T but that seems like overkill for a piece that will not bee seen. It might also complicate my glueup. (Although I do intend to start by assembling the sides)
The other problem I am having is how to join the dust panel back and sides. After I assemble and glue up the sides of the case, I will need to assemble the case back and dust panel in the next step of the glueup. But how do I attach it?
Looking for input. (Dang, I didn’t figure it out yet)
