I’ve cut the side panels and shelf stock. Note that the entire project is based around three degree cuts, so … the tops and bottoms of the side panels, and the sides of each shelf are all cut to 3*. This also dictates the size of each of the shelves.
The joinery will be biscuits (the slots are at three degrees, too !).
I’ve put the 1/4” rabbet in the side panels, for the plywood back. I’ve also laid out all the lines for the 3-1/2” ‘feet,” to be cut on the band saw, or with the jig saw. The layout lines are visible at the bottom of the side panels.
Everything is sanded down to 220.
Next step is the drawer and the top. LOML tells me that I should do the drawer false front in the same beetle-kill pine. I defer to her aesthetic. The drawer box will be made from Baltic Birch ply.
After that … dry fit, and the fake through tenons.
All in all … it’s going quite well. I’m having a lot of fun, working on this one !
Thanks for looking :-)
