Ok, hand is healed up, for now. Got out a handsaw and trimmed things to length. Someone asked about making dovetails for the corners? Had to rearrange the bench a bit, first. That yellow Miter Box was moved around to the front of the corner of the bench. Cleaned off an area in front of it, as well. Laid out for a few cuts
Had to add some bits of scrap wood to the miter box, to get rid of any flex. C-clamp to hold things in place. Tried a coping saw at first. Hurt the hands and the cut tried to wander a bit. Got out a little better saw, at least as far as my hands were concerned.
Atkins 20” panel saw. It cuts fast, and it cuts straight. Sawing to the lines. Then a change of scenery
Time to chop out the waste stuff. Tried the fit
after making the mating part. Eh, will need some clean up. Set up for the other end, and cut & choped away
and a test fit, again
A little better? I think I will just do the front of the desk this way. have something else in mind for the back corners. Next time, maybe i will have a bottom in the “case” as well.
Might have to fire up the ELECTRIC router for some grooves for the bottom to sit in? Hey, it is a HAND HELD TOOL, right?
Until the next, exciting episode…...
