« Part 4: planing the legs to size. Part 5 of Lowboy Build series Part 6: Leg work.. »

Since getting the planes tuned up and working properly, I have been alternating between flattening the side panels and dimensioning the legs. Today I finally glued up the side panels.

I used winding sticks and a straight edge to flatten the backside of the boards (inside surface) and then squared the matting edges..

With the one board sitting on top of the other, I checked to make sure the seams looked perfect..


Next step..

Um.. Yeah… If you could just heat up the hide glue.. that’d be great…

All done.

I was also able to secure the piece for the back of the case. I was willing to do a panel glue up of the secondary wood.. but this piece of maple just fell into my lap.. so I guess I will use it.

Yup.. 15” wide.

Of course I am never content with just one project at a time.. and right now parallel to the lowboy, I am currently playing with some intense alcohol dyes in preparation for a potential guitar build.

I love, this colour pattern, and am thinking of making a box with this finish.

Last.. I have been writing some content for Tom Fidgen's free site concerning the Spice Cabinet build that I did about 2 years ago.. its new stuff and not exactly what has been posted here. There will be new stuff posted every Friday morning on Tom’s site. So please check it out.

Just fantastic Jeremy. I’ve been on the guitar build, want to do mode for some time. Perhaps you will move me forward.
