Last time I installed reinforcements to the plain mitred corners of my Stanley no.45 Box, and left them to cure. Now came the time to flush of the excess material, and knock the sharp edges off.
The initial work was done with my small pull saw, after which I turned to a sharp chisel, and then smooth plane and card scraper.
Supporting the box over boards clamped to the bench top works really well, and this method is often used when making drawers.
Once the surfaces were satisfactorily flushed and smoothed, I took my low angle block plane, and eased all the edges.
That was the box completed. I could have just stopped there and thrown all the 45’s parts in, but for the sake of a little more effort, I decided to add a few internal fitments to prevent the parts from all banging together during transport. I’ll describe those next time.
