« Part 3: My first Mortise & Tenon! Part 4 of New Yankee Blanket Chest series Part 5: Measure Twice, Hand Plane Once! »

It’s cold and rainy out and work and grad school are getting in the way so no wood working today. However, I couldn’t take it anymore and I had to at least assemble one side with no glue just to see how it was coming along. Then since the joints held together with just friction I figured I would stick the whole thing together. The side rails are a little loose in their mortises but other than that everything is nice and tight. It needs a bit of work to clean up some of the joints before I break out the glue but hopefully this weekend I can get the panels cut and glue some pieces together.
