« Part 8: Glass and Mirrors Part 9 of Jewelry Case Build series Part 10: Installing Doors, Final Sanding, Applying Finish »

Today I began assembly. Everything went really well. One small error I had to fix, Once the glue was dry, I noticed the little drawers were slightly proud of the side panel. This would prevent the door from closing. I just took out each drawer and sanded a bit off the face. They fit fine now.

I had to chisel out eight tiny hinge mortises. I’ve also never done those before. They turned out quite nice.

I only have to do a final fit on the doors and screw them into place then give the whole thing a light final sanding and a couple more coats of Boiled Linseed Oil.
