Well, a short day in the shop today. Lawn’s not gonna mow itself…...........!
I laid out the parts on the board, in chalk, so as to get a 3-corner grain match. The grain match will die into a rear corner:
Next, I cut the 45 degree miters on all the box side pieces. I use a Wixey digital angle gauge, and it makes setting precise angles ridiculously easy. Every miter joint I’ve ever made with it is airtight—man I love this thing!
Tomorrow I’ll cut the grooves for the top and bottom, and go from there. See ya then!
