Whenever I draw up the plans myself instead of working from a published plan, I stop and dry fit often (probably too much) but I seem to catch errors in arithmetic and design faster this way. Here’s a couple of pics of the dry fit from yesterday. Click the thumbnail pics for a larger view.
Here's the way it looks with the frame and panels for the sides glued up and the back dry fitted and clamped in place.
Now, I'm pondering how I want to fix the draw dividers in place . . . dowels . . . bisquits . . . pocket screws . . . hmmmmm. I'll have to reread the pockethole jig owner's manual (a b-day gift from a friend) and make sure I have the right size screws for this application, but I'm leaning in that direction. What do you think?
Worship this morning. Nap and newspaper to the present mid-afternoon. Drop daughter at the movies and groceries next. Maybe I'll get to work on it some tonight. For sure I'll be at it tomorrow on Memorial Day.
