Not much time this week – this will probably be my only blog entry – maaaaybe one other evening this week I will have a bit of time back in the shop? Unfortunately, I don’t think I’m going to get anything ready for the summer challenge :(
Sized all the drawer sides to length
Practiced on scraps with the PC jig (4212) on through dovetails for the drawer sides to back joinery. It’s a little more complicated on through dovetails (more steps, flipping template, switching bits from dovetail to straight – wish I had two routers with 1/2” collets), but it should be okay if I work deliberately again and make sure my pieces are set tight against the guide & turned the correct way.
Practice on Poplar scraps – bit needed to be set a tad deeper – 1/16” to 3/32” – but pretty nice otherwise (click for larger view):
Set up the jig and made ready to cut tails on the back of first drawer side. But then, shut off the lights to move to the next task for the evening. It will be ready to go the next time I get out there.
