There is one last step to do to the blades before I can do the glue up. A miter has to be cut on each end so the beaded molding can fit in. I use a scrap piece cut on a 45 angle

The best way I found to do this is cut across the grain with a chisel using the mitered block as a guide to get something that looks like this. By cutting across the grain tear out is minimized. Rather than just hacking down with the chisel laying on the guide.

I did use an ogee bit for the lower trim. After it was clean-up and waste removed for the miter this is what it looked like right before glue up

! 34 !

The side molding covered up the dove tails and I got a pretty good fit. For the molding I used hide glue rather than brown elmers. Its much easier to clean up if some leaks out.

The next step is the feet. I’m going to do ogee bracket feet for this chest. Four of them aren’t that hard to make. The front ones can be a bit of a problem though
