I have the basic frame assembled. It is smaller than I expected but it should serve as a jig storage/ assembly/work cart just fine. And it will fit into my work area s I had hoped it would.
Here is my progress for today.
One of the sides glued, screwed and tattood! :-) The joints are half lap. I forgot to mention the legs and sides are 2×4 from the big box store. The end pieces are hard maple I had on hand.
The frame is complete. I will let the glue cure over night. It turned out square at every angle. That makes me a happy camper.
I checked to see if the dovetail jig will fit through the opening and it does…just barely. I was thinking about building the work center from the Woodsmith Shop plan but now I am not sure if it will fit. I might have to leave one end open so it can slide in. I will give that some thought tomorrow.
